Water Reuse Project
   

Temporary Water Reuse Project
The City's water reuse project has begun. Contractors will install  a 63,000 foot long pipeline from the Cyprus Water Treatment Plant to the River Road Wastewater Treatment Plant.

Once completed and tested the pipe will carry 7.5 million gallons of water that will be treated, tested and redistributed into the City's potable water supply.

The project costs 13 million dollars and the contractor has until mid-February of 2014 to complete the project.
