Wastewater Treatment Plant Construction Begins

Construction begins for Valley View's new Wastewater Treatment Plant. Construction begins for Valley View's new Wastewater Treatment Plant. Doug Bishop

The construction crew installing the new wastewater treatment plant arrived yesterday and started digging. Some people may be annoyed by the noise and activity and we want to give everyone notice. We would have told you sooner had we known the exact start date. This project is weather dependent and the contractor had to find their own window. Some people might want to come and see the progress. If you do want to take a look, please stay well away from the construction zone and watch from a safe distance. Others may want to avoid the noise and bustle. It's going to be a busy few weeks.

This is a real milestone. We've been planning this for at least six years. It's happening at last. When the project is complete, it means less odor, less noise, and a less disturbing treatment system for decades to come. Yay! Let's celebrate!
