Johnson County Government to hold groundbreaking ceremony for Tomahawk Creek expansion project


Johnson County Government will hold a groundbreaking ceremony to kick off its Tomahawk Creek Wastewater Treatment Facility expansion project. The ceremony will include comments from Board Chairman Ed Eilert, 1st District Commissioner Ron Shaffer, Interim County Manager Penny Postoak Ferguson, Wastewater General Manager Susan Pekarek, and executives from Black & Veatch and McCarthy Building Companies.

Currently, Johnson County sends 60 percent its wastewater flow to Kansas City, Missouri, for treatment, but by 2021, with the opening of this facility, the county will treat all of its wastewater for that site and save approximately $16 million annually. More information is available at jcwtomahawk.com. Parking and site information is available online.


Media are invited to a groundbreaking ceremony for Johnson County Wastewater’s Tomahawk Creek Wastewater Treatment Facility expansion project.


Tomahawk Creek Wastewater Treatment Facility, 10701 Lee Boulevard, Leawood Kansas

When:  1:30 p.m. Thursday, April 12
