According to County Engineer Randy Will, the soil at their research facility will not allow for a traditional septic system. There will be no cost to the county.

"I'm not a big fan," Will said. "But it was stressed to me that this was their final option."

The funding is for 2012, Will said. Approving the agreement will allow the county to obtain $1.2 million, and offset its costs. Will said the costs is estimated at $2.1 million.

"We're proposing to do something similar to what we did from P29 to Claire," he said.
