Quincy officials pushing for upgrades at water treatment plant

Posted:
QUINCY - Quincy officials say they hope the city's aldermen will approve funding for upgrades and improvements at their water treatment plant.

Officials say aldermen will meet on Monday to discuss approving the $3.1 million in work planned for Quincy's water treatment plant.  The money comes from user fees, and approximately $500,000 in improvements have already been approved.

According to Jeffrey Conte, Director of Utilities and Engineering in Quincy, the water treatment plant dates back to the 1900s, with the last major overhaul taking place in the 1950s.  If the funding is approved, Conte says it will be used to replace tanks, pumps, and other infrastructure, as well as to add a computerized system to automate how chemicals are added to the water.
