Lysander is weighing options to permanently fix the problem. Possible long-term solutions include connecting homes to neighboring sewage systems, which could cost $1.2 million to $1.8 million, depending on which sewage design is chosen.
The town board will likely approve a sewage design after the town holds another informational meeting for residents, according to Bullis. Lysander has scheduled a meeting for Sept. 9 at 6:30 p.m. at the town hall at 8220 Loop Road.
Councilor John Krisanda suggested the town should consider delaying major work on the sewage system.
"The water was the real issue," he said. "I know we want to replace the beds, but if we can delay five years, we can save some money. As long as the system works, I really just want to save the folks out here some money if we can."
