In 2007, Surgoinsville was one of the few municipalities in Tennessee without a public sewer system limiting economic development opportunities. The town had several homes with failing septic systems. Additionally, a package plant in operation since 1959 that served the Surgoinsville Elementary and Middle Schools was at the end of its useful life. The town decided to pursue a sewer system that could handle current needs with capacity for the future.
