Wastewater Treatment Plant Assessment

With uncertainty regarding the level of damage sustained at Yankton’s wastewater treatment plant during March’s flooding, in preparation for a construction project city officials have decided to move up the timing of an assessment of the facility.

Director of Environmental Services Kyle Goodmanson says they had been planning on doing the assessment at some point in the next several years.

Goodmanson says if a federal disaster is declared the engineering costs of the project would not qualify for aid but the actual project work might qualify.

Goodmanson says there is no definite timeline for the assessment which is expected to take at least six months to complete.
