WGEM provides an inside look at the renovations underway at the the Fort Madison, Iowa Water Treatment Plant. The goal is to bring water standards up to state code with upgrades to the chlorine building, sludge storage tanks and electrical generators.
The upgrades are the first for the plant in 40-years. "The second phase is a major renovation" shares Stanley Consultants' Project Engineer, Jay Brady. "About $16 million are going into it and it's touching all parts of the plant."
Energy efficiency and resiliency improvements are expected to help ensure the next 20 years of water resources for the community.
