The Saratoga Heights NID is a proposal to design and construct approximately 1,200 feet of sanitary sewer main and lateral connections to five properties currently on private septic systems. The main will extend from an existing sanitary manhole on Lots 18 (6 Sheffield Ct.) and 19 (5 Sheffield Ct.) in the Briargate subdivision, to the rears of Lots 10 (865 Saratoga Heights Dr.) and 14 (825 Saratoga Heights Dr.) in the Saratoga Heights subdivision. Duckett Creek Sewer District will be the agency responsible for maintaining the sanitary main.
The Development Review Division is currently reviewing the proposed plans that were submitted by the engineering firm of Pickett, Ray, & Silver. Once St. Charles County has approved the plans, these will be submitted to Duckett Creek Sanitary Sewer Company for review. Should Duckett Creek have any comments, Pickett, Ray, & Silver will make required corrections. Once St. Charles County and Duckett Creek are satisfied with the plans, Development Review will schedule a workshop with the residents within the NID of Saratoga Heights and present the plans showing the layout of the main sanitary sewer line.
The ordinance for the creation of the Saratoga Heights Sanitary Sewer Neighborhood Improvement District (NID) was passed by the County Council on Nov. 28 and signed by the County Executive on Dec. 2. Pickett, Ray and Silver have begun preliminary plans. Surveying will begin the week of Dec. 19 and take several days.
