Water Treatment Plant ongoing project 2022
The Water Treatment Plant has been undergoing numerous updates throughout the facility. The current project may create some additional noise during the early morning and possible odors. The early morning start time is coordinated to take advantage of "Low Flow" conditions that will allow us to complete the project safely and have very little effect on the town residence. Beginning on Tuesday August 16th at approximately 2:30 AM, you may hear pumps running and continue to run throughout the day. The pumps are necessary to complete the project as well as dry weather conditions. If we don't have the correct conditions we will be forced to set another date unknown at this time. Your patience is appreciated as we try to move forward with very little disruption to our local neighbors. Thank youClick to view document
