[jwplatform gywd8UJT]

COLUMBUS, Miss. (WCBI) — A Lowndes County neighborhood with a history of sewage and drainage problems could get some relief. The county and Columbus Light and Water are putting together a state and federal grant proposal to extend sewer service to areas along Kimberly and Pecan drives as well as part of Pickensville road.

As many as 100 homes just outside the southern Columbus city limits could be impacted. The homes have failing septic tanks and are in low-lying, flood prone areas.

A public hearing to gauge public support is set for March 20th at the National Guard Armory off Highway 69 South.
