Lyons Explores New Water Treatment Plant
Friday, 31 December 2010

December 31--  The city of Lyons is planning on building a new multi-million dollar wastewater treatment plant.

Mayor John Moore says it would replace the city's North Treatment Plant in order to be ready for more growth in the industrial park north of Lyons on U.S. One.  The current plant handles about 680,000 gallons per day and a new facility would more than double that capacity.

"It's a big, big project.  The current plant has been there about 20 years and its done its job.  Now that the industrial park is there, it looks like its going to expand onand on, so we've got to have a new treatment facility to accomodate growth in the park," Mayor Moore says.

The current estimated cost of the project is about $8.4 million. Mayor Moore says a combination of things has to happen to finance construction.  He's looking at adjusting city water rates for industrial users, borrowing about $5 million and seeking grants from the U.S. Department of Agriculture for the balance.
