The city of Salem is rebuilding the 51-year-old Lake John Hay Water Treatment Plant. The upgraded plant will serve the community and Washington County for the next 75 years.
Firs built in 1968, the plant is situated on two acres in the north central section of Washington County.
The plant will pump 3.0 million gallons per day and will feature a modern design, automated technology, and a separate control room, among improvements.
The project will cost $15.2 million. Construction is set for completion in the spring of 2021.
