Olney Approves Water Reuse Project

Olney Approves Water Reuse Project

Olney city leaders unanimously approved a water reuse project tonight.

With the city under drought restrictions, city leaders say they needed to find a long-term solution.

They approved funding the construction of a pipe that would go from the wastewater treatment plant to Lake Olney.

"Everyone is pretty well on board and they understand the situation we are in here, that we need to do anything we can to conserve water. And the reuse project is part of that conservation program, so I think everyone is kind of on board with it," said Danny Parker, Olney's City Manager.

The bond for the construction of the pipe is worth $2.44 millions dollars. The city is hoping to take bids for the project by mid summer.
