Wednesday afternoon the RUSS, Regional Utility Service Systems, Board held a special meeting to discuss Richmond and Rubio waste water projects. Supervisor Jack Seward, who sits on the RUSS board, reports that RUSS acknowledged the separation of RUSS from the Richmond and Rubio projects. He adds that the exact cost is unknown at this time, but will probably be due in January of 2014.

On Tuesday, the Washington County Board of Supervisors voted to remove RUSS from the waste water system projects in Richmond and Rubio and pursue installing individual systems for systems that are deemed not compliant.
