Chester moving ahead on improvements to water, wastewater plants
The Chester City Council moved ahead this week on renovation projects at the city's water treatment plant and the wastewater treatment plant -- voting to proceed with a loan application with the Illinois Environmental Protection Agency and starting on the design work. At the water treatment plant, the city will install a grit removal system for a little over $2.3 million. City Engineer Harold Sheffer, of the J.T. Blankenship firm in Murphysboro, said as the pumps pull water from the Mississippi River to be treated for use by residents and businesses, a lot of grit and sand comes with it.
