New water treatment plant ready to roll

The Garberville Sanitary District installed two new raw water intake pumps in the well in the South Fork Eel River last week. During the nighttime replacement of the old pump, district customers were asked to conserve water. The electronic systems control required synchronization with the operating system and contractors convened to make the needed adjustments. The new water treatment plant is scheduled to begin operating this week. Final completion date is in September.
