Dutcher's research provided estimated expenses to supply water and sewer to each area, with the cost typically effected by terrain and distance to existing water or sewer lines.
Dutcher explained that the information was intended to assist potential developers in identifying the most affordable areas in the community for new projects and said he had also communicated it to the McCook Planning Commission in March.
According to Dutcher the city water system had a capacity of 6.5 million gallons pumped per day and utilized an average of 3 million gallons per day, with an annual peak just over 4 million.
Residential and light industrial development should not pose a problem for the system and heavy industrial development could probably be accommodated as well but would depend on the industry and its waste output, Dutcher said.
