The city currently operates three interim water treatment plants at Well #3, Well #10 and at Well #7/8 (can treat either well, but not both at the same time). At this time, the city is in the process of adding two more interim treatment plants, one at Well #2 and an additional one near the Well #7/8 site in order to be able to treat both Well 7 and Well 8 at the same time. These new treatment systems are being funded by a combination of the 3M Consent Order and the 3M Settlement Agreement.
The construction of the Interim Treatment System for Well #7 started on Jan. 23, 2023. The construction of the Interim Treatment System for Well #2 started on Feb. 6, 2023. The two Interim Treatment Systems are scheduled to be fully operational in June of 2023.
