Phoenicia heard sobering news Monday night about the costs of building a sewer system for the hamlet.
Under discussion since 1997, the costs have been going up and up and up.
Now, according to La-mont Engineering, which has been studying five different options for a system, it would cost between $25 and $30 million to build a system and between $550, 000 and $600,000 a year to run.
Now, those figures, while staggering if the 250 users in the tiny hamlet had to pay all of it, have not yet been broken down by La-mont.
