City of Nevada Sewer Route Modification 

The City of Nevada has requested a Conditional Use Permit modification to route the sewer for the city's new wastewater treatment facility through or along 19 parcels, all under private ownership and in agricultural use, east of County Road S-14. The route begins at the new force main south of Highway 30 and moves south to the new Wastewater Treatment Facility that is under construction at 62512 270th Street. The sewer line will be constructed through open trenching, and all manholes are proposed to be buried. The route is requesting to be modified as the previous route in the county road right-of-way was not feasible due to traffic safety issues. 

A map of the proposed route can be found below. The narrative for the proposal can be found here

The item will be addressed by the Story County Board of Adjustment at a public meeting on Wednesday, January 19, 2022, beginning at 4 PM, in the Public Meeting Room located on the 2nd floor of the Story County Administration Building (900 6th Street, Nevada, Iowa).
