In the spring of 2018, the City Commission approved engineering services to Holloway, Updike and Bellen for a new water treatment plant. Plans and specs have been developed and are going through the final refining stage now.

In addition to plans for our new Water Plant we are in the process developing plans to loop our water system line for circulation of the water.

City administration has met with ODEQ and financial advisors to review the plans and proposed timeline which is outlined below.

Please know that your City Commission and administration are and have been working on the new water treatment plant plans. A project of this magnitude takes time and has to be approved by several entities including ODEQ, OWRB, financial advisors, and the City. Please bear with us through this project. We will have a new water treatment plant soon.

Thank you,
