Water treatment plan replacement timeline laid out


Plans detailing modifications at the Water Treatment Plant in Chickasha were laid out Tuesday night during the city council's weekly meeting. 

Guernsey representative Carl Stigley  was on hand to speak on a timeline for the first water project. 

"Logically we broke this up into six projects," said Stigley. "The first two will be a system repair and addition of a third pump in case of emergency." 

Stigley said those additions should happen quickly and expects completion by the end of June. 

The third project will be an evaluation of the clearwater well. 

"We would like to have an engineer take a look at and make sure nothing is compromised," said Stigley. 

The final three projects will involve a preliminary evaluation and plan for the new water treatment plant. 

"We hope to have the clear well project finished by the end of fiscal year 2015," said Stigley. 

The council also discussed signal lights at intersections such as 3rd Street and Chocktaw Avenue, which have been rotating too quickly. 

City Manager Stuart Fairburn said his office is aware of the problem and they are working to fix it. 

After extensive discussion in last week's workshop session, the council adopted the Park System Master Plan in a 7-0 vote Tuesday night. 

Council Members Ryan Posey and Howard Carpenter did not attend the meeting.
