10/23/2017 9:00:00 AM City council explores sludge storage options
At a recent budget meeting, the Windom city council discussed options regarding sludge storage for the Windom wastewater treatment plant.
The anticipated $13.8 million treatment plant project calls for $1.5 million in biosolid storage construction. However, council members are considering alternatives that may help limit the city's cost in that area, according to City Administrator Steve Nasby.
Nasby said there is a shortage of options for the plant's biosolids (residue). The material is typically spread on farm fields and council members want to research whether it would make sense to purchase property for more biosolid storage.
