If all goes as planned, the City of West Point will submit its plans and specifications for the water treatment plant improvements to the State Department of Health by the end of this week.

That news was shared last night (Tuesday) at the November city council meeting by City Administrator Tom Goulette.

He told the council that Advanced Consulting Engineering Services will be meeting with Layne Ox this Wednesday or Thursday to finalize plans and should submit them to DHHS on Friday.

Those plans include installing three LayneOx filters that, after substantial testing, the city believes will help take care of the high level of manganese that has been detected in the city’s water the past year.
