OLIVE BRANCH, Miss. (AP) - The city of Olive Branch will study sewer expansion options in light of anticipated growth in eastern DeSoto County.

Mayor Scott Phillips tells The Commercial Appeal (https://bit.ly/1DjsdXb ) he is expecting growth to be the greatest along the Mississippi Highway 302 corridor, a few miles from the Tennessee state line.

The study will cost $70,000. It is funded with a grant and money from Olive Branch and the DeSoto County Regional Utility Authority, which runs waste treatment facilities.

Officials say the study should determine whether the Metro Waste Treatment Plant, which is part of DCRUA, can be expanded to serve the area of expected growth. The plant has been in existence since at least the 1970s. It underwent an upgrade in 2008. Two other, small plants also serve the eastern area.
