Sewer System for Killearn Lakes

Construction of the long awaited Killearn Lakes sewer system is underway.

Leon County commissioners approved a $4.2 million contract for the installation of the system, using the Blueprint 2000 sales tax program.

This move was taken after residents in units one and two dealt with chronic septic tank failures made worse during heavy rains.

The City of Tallahassee will provide the sewer service. All residents are encouraged to connect to the new system, which is expected to go on line next August.
