Fargo Water Plant expansion nearly ready

FARGO (KFGO-AM) - Design work is nearly complete on major expansion of Fargo's Water Treatment Plant. Bids will be let in June and work should get underway on the $60 million project by August.

City Enterprise Director Bruce Grubb says the project involves installation of a filter system that will allow the plant to handle impurities contained in water releases from Devils Lake.

Fargo periodically draws water from the Sheyenne River that's used as a channel to siphon excess water from Devils Lake. The expansion will also increase the water plant's daily capacity by 15 million gallons. The State is funding half the project cost.
