Superior orders design of water treatment plant
June 30, 2022
After considering five options related to the City of Superior municipal water system, the Superior City Council on Monday evening approved hiring an engineering firm to design a water treatment plant. The option is expected to cost about $4.5 million.
Unlike the treatment plant shut down about 50 years ago that used lime and aluminum sulfate to treat the water, the new plant will use a reverse osmosis system.
The City of Superior uses on average 750 to 800 thousand gallons of water per day during the peak consumption period which traditionally is in the second half of July.
