City aware of water quality issues, working to identify the source

The public works department continues to work with contractors to finish the punch list for the water plant project. Public Works Superintendent Bruce Hirchert told city commissioners at their Sept. 7 meeting that he tried different filters as recommended, but they are only lasting six days rather than 14. He is checking into the price difference to see which ones are more efficient long-term.
