Residents of Godfrey's Piasa Hills who have not tapped onto the new sewer, or at least gotten a permit to begin the process, will have to do so soon. The village replaced the septic system on the extreme western Godfrey border, with a sewer system for more than 140 homes by extending a main sanitary sewer line. Those who are unable to tap on due to financial hardship will soon have help available.
Trustee and Sewer Committee Chairman Jeff Weber says out of the 122 houses in Piasa Hills, only 12 to 15 have not connected.
The project was officially completed last October 15, when letters telling residents they had 60 days to tie on to the sewer line were sent out.
