Water plant back to normal operation

CLINTON — City commissioner John Wise recently reported repair and other work continues on the city water plant.

“The plant is 20-some years old, and we’ve got things that are breaking,” Wise told other commissioners during the Sept. 5 council meeting.  “There are things we try to get parts for, and it’s kind of tough on some of the older stuff.”

He said, however, everything at the plant was back up and running.  Wise thanked plant employees for their extra work to restore capacity at the facility.

Work at the plant included the lime treatment silo and pumps.  Wise said work to rebuild some pumps continued.  Repairs, especially those involving lime treatment, now should have the water running clear again.

Some other work was waiting on the completion of plans by engineers, but Wise assured the council the work was on track.

“Probably won’t get to it this fall …but it is coming,” he said.
