Omaha (KPTM) – A group coordinating an update of the city's water system with local and federal governments is presenting its design plans for a treatment center Thursday.
Representatives of Clean Solutions for Omaha will be speaking at the Peter Kiewit Institute about an implementation plan that will take 27 years to complete.
Spokeswoman, Linda Lovegren says this is year three and that the discussion is to inform the public and get their feedback on the proposed a treatment center in the Saddle Creek Retention Treatment Basin project.
Lovegren says right now it only takes one-tenth of an inch of water to overflow the sewer systems and threaten creeks and river with raw sewage.
The proposed site for the treatment center is at 64th Avenue and Dupont Street. Construction wouldn't start until 2015 and take three years to complete.
The current structure removes gravel from water, but the new one will also separate garbage and lightly chlorinate the water.
If you want to attend the meeting tomorrow it is at 6:30 p.m. and the address is 1110 South 67th Street in the reception room.
