MHK growth has Commission discussing water facility improvements


The Manhattan City Commission reviewed the latest from the City’s Water and Wastewater Facilities Plan Update Project, Tuesday evening.

Commissioners also discussed the results of a Risk and Vulnerability Assessment, which calls for emergency power improvements to the City’s water treatment plant.

A new power generator will be installed by next summer as Assistant Project Manager, Garrett Sheehan with Carollo Engineers explained.

“That 2,000 kW generator will run, 60-70 percent of the plant, so we can get by with some reduced usage.”

Going forward, the Commission will be faced with the challenge of financing a potential expansion of the City’s water treatment plant and bio-solid management system.
