According to a Thursday, Sept. 8 press release from the Town of Lakeview, “The Lakeview Water Treatment Facility project remains on track and within budget.” The release adds, “The Town’s water supply suffers from heightened levels of iron and manganese. The Town has shut off its ‘north well’ because of arsenic levels. The Water Treatment Facility is being constructed to treat the groundwater and provide clean drinking water to the community that meets primary and secondary regulatory water quality criteria.”
The Town on Aug. 16 received its contract documents for the $15 million in funding it has been granted for the water treatment project. The press release explains that the Town will not receive all the money at once, but will be given allotments as steps in the water treatment project are completed.
