"All of us are stewards of the land, and conservation by nature. We want to fix the problem that's the overflow with the CSO in Silver Grove. But, at the same time, we don't want to bring a new problem to our community," said Anna Zinkhon who lives in the area.
That problem being the location of the proposed underground force main pipe. Zinc hon says it'll go right through the valley in the area, and could hurt property value, cause erosion to the banks of area waterways and hurt income-producing agricultural land.
"These are utility companies supposed to be working for the betterment of all of us, not taking one person or one group's problem and then creating a problem for somebody else just to improve somebody else's lifestyle," said Zinkhon.
Zinkhon isn't against the pipeline project. She knows it needs to happen to alleviate the overflow issues that are going on in this area. But, even so, she's still willing to sacrifice a piece of her land as long as plans for the project change.
"That solution, even though it's on my property, I can probably still deal with that. It's not going to impact me as much. But taking it through the whole valley impacting 40 or 50 property owners, that's not acceptable," she said.
That would involve an alternative route recently looked at that she says would cost millions more.
A representative from the state's Division of Water says the project could cost close to $20 million. That department issues permits and approves projects.
"It's got to go somewhere, we realize that. We want to put it in the place that makes the most sense and the least impact," Zinkhon told FOX19.
A representative from the Division of Water told FOX19 that environmental assessments have been done and public hearings have been held regarding the line. They'll respond to comments and issue a final plan in the coming weeks that could ultimately include changes to the project.
SD1 must implement a solution to the overflow problem by the end of December 2015.
