West Point will be bringing in a pilot water treatment facility later this month to experiment with water quality. It’s an effort recommended by the state health department to identify and find an appropriate treatment for water quality and clarity issues with the water system. Several people were on hand for last night’s city council meeting where water issues dominated the agenda.
The unit will go into operation June 17th at a cost of $14,000. Once the pilot study is completed, engineers will submit results to the state health department and then prepare specs and plans for dealing with the community’s water issues.
City Administrator Tom Goulette says a communications committee made up of him, some council members and consulting engineers will meet this Friday to work on getting information out to the public on how the city is responding to the water problems.
