Wastewater treatment plant plans move forward in Illinois

A new design contract is in the works for the wastewater treatment plant in Marengo, Ill. The plant currently treats 900,000 gallons per day, but the expansion would increase that to 2.25 million gallons per day.

The $12 million project was put on hold earlier this year when a buried landfill was discovered that would have added to the cost.

The originally contracted firm McMahon & Associates was released from its agreement, and the city is now using their own engineering firm, H.R. Green, to design the plant upgrade.

According to an online article from the Northwest Herald, “H.R. Green plans to bid the project this summer to ensure the city can acquire a $13 million state loan needed to finance construction in 2013.”
