City to have open house for new treatment plant
Those wanting to know a little more about Baldwin's new $3.3 million wastewater treatment plant will soon have a chance to have all of their questions answered.
An open house is scheduled for 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday at the wastewater treatment plant, which is located on the south side of Baldwin just off of Orange Street. Tours will be given by plant operators.
"We're wanting to give the residents of the city who are paying for the place a chance to see what their money is going for," Utility Director Terry McKinney said.
The new plant, which includes two 490,000 gallon trains or units which process waste, was completed in spring of 2003.
Assistant Utility Director Bill Winegar said Baldwin residents should be aware of what their utility rates pay for and how the city's infrastructure works.
"They need to be aware of what the process is," Winegar said. "And this is an opportune time for people to come down and look at the facility."
