New site for Jacksonville water treatment plant

Posted:

Jacksonville – A new site for a water treatment plant in Jacksonville has been selected.

 

The new plant will be right by the current plant. The new location is outside of the flood zone. Back in June of 2011 the current plant was shut down for a few weeks after flooding.

 

The new plant is expected to cost up to 35,000,000 dollars. The price tag will be passed on to the customer by raising monthly water rates. Bills could increase from $4 to $14 dollars depending on how much water is used.
