Water Study

Posted on 9th October 2015 at 09:03

The Longview City Council is expanding the consultant contract with CH2M, voting to move ahead with a feasibility study regarding the possible location of Ranney Well Collectors along the Cowlitz River, to supply Longview’s water. Longview Public Works Director Jeff Cameron says that the scouting for possible locations is already getting under way…waterstudy…At this time, the site investigation is looking at three general areas, North Lexington near Riverside Park, South Lexington near Rocky Point, and near the old Fishers Lane Water Treatment Plant. Last night’s vote expands the construct with CH2M, paying that company another 325 thousand dollars to conduct the feasibility study. The first step will be a “notice to proceed,” which will then be followed by the drilling of test wells; early next year, the Citizens Advisory Committee will be reassembled, with at least two meetings planned. An Open House is planned for next May, and the City Council could make a decision in early June.
