The Low Zone Water Treatment Plant is one of two water treatment plants being funded by the 3M Settlement Agreement to mitigate the PFAS contamination in the city’s wells. This water treatment plant will be located in the southwest area of the city, in the northeast corner of the intersection of Ideal Avenue South and 110th Street South. This site will also include the new well, Well #13, which will be constructed to replace two existing city wells. Well #13 will be brought online with the commissioning of the new treatment plant.
The city has commenced with the design of the Low Zone Treatment Plant and is planning to start construction in the second half of 2023. A public meeting is planned to be held in April to provide project information and receive resident feedback. This treatment plant is scheduled to be fully operational in 2025.
