DIAMONDHEAD, Miss. (AP) - The Water and Sewer District of Diamondhead will break ground on its new sewage-treatment plant.

The Sun Herald (http://bit.ly/1NAztD5 ) reports the groundbreaking ceremony for the $24.1 million plant will be held Monday morning.

Mayor Tommy Schaefer says the plant will take 16 to 18 months to construct. He says the entire project, including engineering, assessments, lift station repairs and the relocation of existing or installation of new pipelines, is estimated to cost nearly $36 million.

FEMA will fund the entire project because wind and flood waters damaged the district’s facilities during Hurricane Katrina.

The plant will process 1.25 million gallons of sewage per day and will serve areas in and around the city limits.
