GONZALES, Louisiana — A regional sewer system for the northern reaches of Ascension Parish moved one step closer to becoming a reality last week when the council approved ordinances allowing issuance of up to $60 million in revenue bonds.

Funding for the project comes from a $60 million low-interest loan through the state Department of Environmental Quality, part of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's Clean Water State Revolving Fund.

The parish plans to budget $3.3 million from the parish's existing 1-cent sales tax to secure the bonds.

Chief Administrative Officer Ken Dawson tells The Advocate ( ) a treatment plant for the system likely would be located along La. Highway 73.
