It’s time for our seasonal Holiday Decorating Contest, open to all our residents! Judging will be on Sunday evening, December 19th, by an anonymous panel of elves whose discriminating taste will choose the winners in these categories: BEST OVERALL; MOST WHIMSICAL and BEST ENTRY WAY.

Winners from last year (2020) were the Esposito Residence at 1724 Bahama for Best Overall; the Buckman residence at 2116 Antigua for Most Whimsical, and the Hamm’s Residence at 3512 Trinidad for Best Entryway.

Presentation From Division of Water Quality

Dallas Taylor and Charles Martin, from the LFUCG Division of Water Quality holding a map showing the route our sewage goes until it reaches the treatment plant. The Division of Water Quality provides citizens of Lexington-Fayette County with wastewater treatment and stormwater management services. The city’s sanitary sewer system includes 81 pump stations, over 1400 miles of sewer pipe, and two large wastewater treatment plants (Town Branch and West Hickman).

Effluent flows from pump station number two at the intersection of Bahama and Winchester Road all the way to the highest point of the subdivision in front of the club. At that point gravity takes over and effluent flows through several neighborhoods until it reaches the Town Branch Treatment Plant. The plant is off Old Frankfort Pike inside the circle.

Dallas Taylor

I started at pump stations in 1993 as a mechanic.

Few years later became the Electrician after receiving my license, worked at that position for about 10 years.

Was promoted to supervisor, worked that for around another ten years.

Became the Program manager a little over a year ago.

LFUCG calculates time in 30 day months so that puts me right at 30 years, all at Pump Stations.

I’ve spent a lot of time in your neighborhoodJ
