Water Report

Posted on 20th February 2014 at 17:07

The Longview City Council meets this evening in a workshop session, where they’re scheduled to get the final big report on the city’s water quality issues, along with treatment recommendations for the future. Since fall of last year, the city has been grappling with complaints about water quality, to the extent that they provided bottled water and replaced water mains in sections of the city with the worst problems. At this evening’s meeting, staff will provide a progress report on the water quality issues, along with “key findings” and the causes for discoloration and “white-spotting.” They’ll also discuss mitigation strategies, long-term recommendations and budgetary costs for those ongoing treatment options. The Council will also review proposed water rates for the rest of the year; that action had been postponed, until this system analysis could be completed. This will also be a joint workshop with officials from the Beacon Hill Water and Sewer District. The workshop is set to start at 6 pm in the Longview City Hall second floor training room, and the meeting is open to the public.
