May 24, 2023: 10-year, $100-million Ann Arbor water treatment plant project getting underway
The aging Ann Arbor water treatment facility is going to change. The 10-year project is one of the most substantial infrastructure improvements Ann Arbor has undertaken and is estimated to cost $100 million. Where are we in the process, and what comes next? Glen Wiczoric is Senior Utilities Engineer at the facility. He joined WEMU's David Fair to discuss progress and the ongoing challenges of keeping the drinking water supply safe and free of contamination.
