Two Years Needed for Water Plant Design

The Yankton City Commission will get an update tonight on water rates and the progress on new wells and water treatment plant.

The city currently has two water plants, one dating to the 1920s and the newest from the 1970s. The new plant would replace the older plant and wells would replace the water supply from the Missouri River.

Mayor Nancy Wenande says the design process of the plant will be quite extensive…………

The construction time has been extended out now to 2017 or 2018. Wenande says the extended time line could push the cost of the project up……………

The project has been projected to cost about twenty nine million dollars.

Wenande says they want to focus on the wells first to replace the raw intake for the current water plant…………
