City retrofitting former industrial water processing system
Published: July 16,2013
WEST POINT — The city of West Point is beginning a project to retrofit a former industrial water processing system and connect it to the city’s sewage infrastructure.
The Commercial Dispatch reports that West Point officials believe improvements to the city’s waste water system will put its processing operations on par with nearby Starkville and Columbus.
Mayor Robbie Robinson says the $6 million project won’t expand the city’s sewage-processing capacity, but it will allow West Point to save money by shutting down its lagoon and sand filter systems in the future.
West Point water superintendent Dwight Prisock says it will provide a higher standard of filtration and allow the city to receive improved Mississippi Department of Environmental Quality and Environmental Protection Agency certifications.
The project is funded by a Mississippi Department of Environmental Quality loan.
