Work on $743,000 Greenwood sewer plant upgrade to start soon
Construction will start before the snow flies on a project that will allow the Greenwood wastewater treatment plant to temporarily meet more stringent rules on the amount of phosphorus that can be discharged into the Black River watershed. The upgrade, with an estimated cost of more than $743,000, may be eligible for Department of Natural Resources grant funding to either pay a portion of the costs or at least provide low-interest loan funds.
The Greenwood City Council on Sept. 23 approved a $530,750 contract with M-Z Construction Inc., of Linden for the main work to be done at the treatment plant in Greenwood, and at the wastewater holding ponds near Loyal. With another $43,880 in work to be done on electronic plant controls, almost $39,000 for engineering work, and a 10 percent contingency cost, the total work could near $750,000 when complete. The city has started the process of applying for the DNR grant funds, and should know yet this year if it will receive financial help.
