— A final plat for a flower shop and new home at 2625 W Danforth Road was approved this week by city council members.

Kris and Tammy Kloxin, owners of Designs by Tammy, want to build a new 1,800-square-foot house and renovate a two-story house on the property for their business.

Council members approved the final plat with a variance on the 23,000-square-foot lot for a single-family home site using an aerobic system for wastewater disposal.

An aerobic system is a small-scale sewage treatment system similar to a septic tank system, but which uses an aerobic process for digestion rather than just the anaerobic process used in septic systems.

“In an aerobic system, the wastewater is put in a holding tank and then the treated water is sprayed onto the yard,” City Engineer Steve Manek said.

Oklahoma City-County Health Department regulations require the florist shop to have a septic system, said City Planner Bob Schiermeyer.

A septic system creates an anaerobic bacterial environment in a tank, which decomposes or mineralizes the waste discharged into the tank. It is underground and uses lateral lines, Manek said.

The nearest sanitary sewer line is across the street to the south and would require boring under Danforth Road, Schiermeyer said. There is no sewer line to the north, he said.

No nearby property owners opposed the project.
