Water Treatment Plant Construction Project

While noting that the construction of Yankton’s new municipal water treatment plant is about three weeks behind the original schedule, officials are still pleased with the project’s progress so far.

Director of Environmental Services Kyle Goodmanson says with the final completion scheduled for next spring, the new plant is expected to operational by the middle of next month.

Once the new plant is on-line Goodmanson says it will reduce the number of water quality violations caused by excessive trihalomethanes in the water supply.

Goodmanson says the project is expected to be completed with cost overruns of less than three percent of the total cost of just over thirty-four-point-five million dollars.
