OBERLIN, La. (AP) - Allen Parish is using a $641,016 grant from the state to pay for a sewer line extension project.

Parish Assistant Road Supervisor Joel Johnson tells the American Press (https://bit.ly/1rBtbJl ) a sewer collection system will be provided to more than 30 households in the Lavan subdivision near the parish line, just north of Elton.

He says homeowners in the area are not served by a public sewer. The new system will tie in with the town of Elton’s sewer system.

Johnson says the parish has been working on obtaining funds for the project for nearly 18 years.

Work is expected to begin by the end of the year.
