Background of the Lincoln County Sanitation District

The Hanging Fork Nine-Key Element Watershed Plan, which was developed in conjunction with the Dix River Watershed Council, indicated elevated levels of E. coli bacteria in the Hanging Fork Watershed, of which human waste made up 75% of the fecal bacteria, while livestock averaged 25% (Watershed Based Plan, Hanging Fork Watershed, Third Rock Consultants, 2009).  The large presence of human waste was attributed to failing septic tanks, straight pipes, and lack of sewer system. 

In April 2011, the Lincoln County Fiscal Court adopted an ordinance establishing the Lincoln County Sanitation District as a result of these findings and initiated the development of the Phase I Sewer Project to mitigate the problem.  Phase I installed a sanitary sewer system from Junction City (Boyle County) to Hustonville (Lincoln County) along the US Highway 127 corridor.  This project provided access to wastewater collection for 605 previously unserved customers in western Lincoln County in the Hanging Fork Watershed.  
In 2017, construction was completed on the Phase I & IA project which provided sanitary sewer service to most of Hustonville and subdivisions north of McCormack's Church Road to the Lincoln County / Boyle County line.  

The Lincoln County Sanitation District’s Phase I Sewer Project totaled nearly $8 million and was funded by multiple sources.  Loans were granted by the United States Department of Agriculture – Rural Development and Kentucky Infrastructure Authority.  Matching funds were provided by the Lincoln County Fiscal Court, Stanford-Lincoln County Industrial Development Authority, and City of Hustonville.  Grants were issued by Appalachian Regional Commission, Community Development Block Grant, United States Department of Agriculture – Rural Development, in addition to partial loan forgiveness extended by Kentucky Infrastructure Authority.

After the completion of Phase I, work began to provide additional service to those areas along the 127 corridor south of McCormack's Church Road.  A map of the Phase II Project can be viewed here.
