Casino Will Treat Its Own Sewage
KINDER, La. (AP) — The Coushatta Casino Resort's plan to treat its own sewage will result in a loss of about $120,000 in annual revenue for the town, officials say.
The Coushatta Tribe has maintained a sewer-use agreement with the town for years, but recently completed construction of its own treatment plant, town attorney Michael Holmes tells The American Press (http://bit.ly/cseYHv).
The casino paid the town up to $25,000 a month, with the town treating about 200,000 gallons of waste water daily from the casino and more on weekends, town engineer Tom David said.
