We understand that some residents are still being impacted by the foul odor emanating from the wastewater treatment plant. We are continuing to work on the issue on a daily basis and rest assured it is a priority. We have involved several experts in the field to help us resolve the problem. Unfortunately, there is no quick fix. We are making progress and are committed to resolving the issue as fast as possible.
The long-term solution is refurbishing and upgrading the plant. The Council intends to put that work out to bid at their meeting tonight. We are moving this process forward as quickly as possible. The improvements slated for the plant will help reduce odor and improve water quality. They will also give us the ability to better handle such a problem if it should occur in the future.
We apologize for the inconvenience. It is our intent to have the odor issue resolved in the near future and we will continue working on it diligently until it is resolved.
