Taylorville has been working on bringing a new water treatment plant to town for quite some time, and is finally preparing to break ground on construction of the new plant. The EPA mandated plant will not only increase the capacity for the Taylorville water system, but the contractor building the plant promises the project will bring Taylorville some of the best water in the state.
Taylorville Mayor Bruce Barry, while appearing as a guest on the Newstalk WTIM Morning Show says everything is finally in order, and invited the community to attend the ground breaking ceremony this Friday at 10:30 at the site.
The plant will give the city greater capacity for water, leading to possible expansion of the system, along with higher quality water.
Barry says the plant should be operational by July of 2019.
