McCOOK, Nebraska -- During the McCook City Council meeting, Monday evening at council chambers, Utility Director Jesse Dutcher presented information pertaining to the most water and sewer accessible areas for new development in McCook. Dutcher identified nine potential subdivision areas, located within city limits or the two mile extra-territorial zone, that he believed represented the most accessible new sites.

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.

For further information contact the City of McCook at 345-2022 or stop by the city offices at Memorial Auditorium to view the report.
