The Berrien Press, front page, June 15, 1967
PROGRESS REPORT – Work began this week on the clearing of ground for the oxidation pond for sewage disposal in Nashville. A part of a $214,000 sewer and water project, the pond will cover 28 acres of the area west of Nashville and south of the old G & F Railroad. The work began with a 40-ft. road extended from W. Gary Ave. into the swampland. At the “ground-breaking,” left to right, are: Mayor W.K. Gaskins, Rex Segars, Paul Newbern, Albert Segars. Arthur Pugh Construction Co., Chamblee, Ga., has the contracts for the pond, but the Segars have a subcontract for the heavy machinery work. They reminded residents of the area to be especially watchful for rattlesnakes which will be on the move from the disturbing machinery.
