Hughes County Commission delays decision on sanitary system

The Hughes County Commission will wait six months before making a decision about trying to sell the Cow and Spring Creek Sanitary System.

Hughes County manager Kevin Hipple says the Commission declared the System as surplus in December and wants to get it off the county’s list of property.


After an informational open house yesterday (Mon.), Hipple says the Commission decided to give those who use the system time to consider their options.


The Cow and Spring Creek Sanitary System is located near the Oahe Reservoir approximately 20 miles northwest of Pierre off Highway 1804. The System provides both water and sewer services to residences and businesses in both Hughes and Sully Counties.
