THIBODAUX, La. (AP) - A south Louisiana city faces some costly and complicated choices as it looks at ways to fix a sewer problem that officials say threatens future commercial development.
A sewer pumping station in north Thibodaux, which moves sewerage to a treatment plant on the city's south side, often operates at capacity.
More capacity will be needed for future development.
The city paid an engineering firm, $10,000 to study ways of fixing the problem.
The current options are to install a larger main or build a new treatment plant on the north side of the city.
