Second public meeting on water plant tonight
CLEARWATER -- The city is holding a second public meeting tonight to allow residents to learn about a proposed drinking water treatment plant that the city is considering building with Tampa Bay Water, the region's water supplier. The reverse-osmosis plant would push water pumped from underneath the city through membranes, cleansing it of impurities and boosting the city's water supply. The open-house-style meeting from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. will feature several information stations at which residents can ask local officials about topics including sinkhole concerns and costs. The meeting is being held in Kennedy Middle School's gymnasium, 1660 Palmetto St., directly across from the proposed site of the plant.
