The Washington City Council approved spending up to, but not to exceed, $10,000 for Electrodialysis Reversal equipment for the Water Treatment Plant. The City of Mt. Pleasant is replacing equipment and has four Electrodialysis Reversal stacks that are 7 years newer than Washington’s and is offering to sell the stacks to Washington. Washington Water Treatment Plant Superintendent Chad McCleary explained that acquiring the equipment would replace two stacks that currently aren’t in operation. City Administrator Brent Hinson stated at last night’s meeting that this is a unique situation, but is simply “putting a band-aid on the problem” until the plant is upgraded in a few years.
