Williamsburg Council agrees to water treatment plans

A funding issue with the United States Department of Agriculture has changed the way Williamsburg council intends to proceed with the water treatment plant.

At a meeting Thursday, Nov. 12, village administrator Patti Bates made a recommendation to council members about the plant.

According to Bates, the project was initially divided into three phases: construction of the new plant, combined upgrade and retrograding, and increasing capacity. Although the USDA funding will help to cover the first two phases, it will not cover phase three because the agency does not see the need for the village to increase capacity.
