The Water Resource Recovery Facility or what is commonly known as the sewer plant, is one of the largest projects in-swing in Floyd County. According to City Administrator Steve Diers, the sewer plant had a great fall season in terms of construction.
The oxidation ditch is where chemical processes attempt to remove organic materials from the water – this cleans it. Diers says the city is also soon planning to take 7,000 cubic yards of the school’s dirt from the College Grounds for use in the equalization basin and oxidation ditch.
Even though the dirt is free, the city will need to pay to transport it.
