DAYTON - The location of a regional wastewater treatment facility east of Dayton has been decided.

The plant will be located near Fort Churchill Road and River Road, south of Highway 50 east of Dayton.

According to an agreement, Christo Bardis, owner of the Rolling "A" properties, will give Lyon County a 12-acre site for the plant and all necessary easements. He will also provide Stanton Park with an alternative easement to build a transmission line if lines aren't completed according to a prescribed schedule.

The agreement says Bardis, or the county, must begin construction by Jan. 15, 2000, and complete it by March 15, 2000.

Jim Cavillia, representing Rolling "A" properties, said Bardis will give the easements and site to the county immediately upon approval of the agreement and have the project done on time. An eight-inch line will run from the plant site to the northern edge of the Rolling "A" along Highway 50 near Occidental Drive.

Stanton Park Development will build two phases of the plant - providing adequate sewage treatment for up to 100 residential units - if the Rolling "A" transmission line is completed, but only one phase (48 units) if it is not and the development has to construct its own line through the alternative easement. Payment to Stanton will be in the form of hookup credits.

The final agreement will bring an end to debate about the placement of an east Dayton Valley regional waster facility.

In September, Stanton Park officials said they were tired of "waiting for the Rolling "A" to put things together," and gave the Rolling "A" 90 days to come up with a plan or they would put together plans for their own facility.

The Rolling "A" property allows for gravity feed and was the preferred site by the county and developers.

The commission is expected to take final action on a wastewater facility agreement by the Oct. 21 meeting.
