The City of Greensburg held a check presentation ceremony October 24, 2012 to accept a check from USDA Rural Development in the amount of $3,738,000 for the Greensburg Water Treatment Plant Project. The project includes design and construction of a new 2 mgd conventional water treatment plant to replace the old plant which has reached the end of its useful life. The existing raw water intake and pumping facility will also be replaced and a new high service transmission main will connect the new plant to the existing distribution system. The project is being designed to allow for future expansion of both the plant and the intake facilities.
Dignitaries in attendance at the event included Mayor Lisle Cheatham, City of Greensburg; Tom Fern, Rural Development State Director and Vernon Brown, Rural Utilities Service Program Director. The event was also attended by Greensburg Councilmembers and Board Members from the Green-Taylor Water District.
