Many local leaders gathered Friday morning for the groundbreaking of Taylorville’s new $25 million water treatment plant. The plant will replace the current plant that was built in 1951.
Water Superintendent David Speagle says the plant will be the second in the country to use biotta to treat the city’s water.
Taylorville Mayor Bruce Barry says there are plenty of people before him that helped to make this plant a reality.
The plant is expected to be completed in January of 2019.
