Water Project to be Topic of Discussion at Special Meeting of Carthage Council Tuesday Evening
September 26, 2007 - The Carthage Town Council has scheduled a special meeting for next Tuesday, October 2. According to public notice issued by the council, the meeting will be primarily to address issues concerning the town's water project. In June, the town received a half-million dollar grant to go toward upgrading the town's water utility with a new well field and treatment facility, a new storage tank, and improvements to the town's water distribution system.
In late August, the council approved bids from three companies who will work on the water project. The council's acceptance of these bids was contingent on the town obtaining additional funding in the form of a $1.6 million loan and a $478,200 grant from the U.S. Dept. of Agriculture's Office of Rural Development.
Barring unforeseen delays, work on the project could begin as early as January and be finished by November 2008. The improvements are expected to drastically reduce the current average of 77,000 gallons of water lost each day through leaks in the system, as well as lower the risk of well contamination by nitrates.
In addition to discussion of the water improvement project, the notice issued for Tuesday's meeting also indicates the council may discuss other matters as well.
Tuesday’s meeting will be held at Carthage Town Hall, 6 W. First St., and is scheduled to start at 6:30 p.m. It is open to the public.
