Summary of the April 12 Meetings

In the Work Session

Water Reclamation Facility 
Council Members started the Work Meeting with a tour of Provo's Water Reclamation (aka wastewater treatment) Facility.  They were shown older and newer equipment while manager Mark Ogren explained what would need to be done to meet the expected changes to state regulations. Nitrogen and phosphorous would have to be removed from the treated water. More discussion on this was held later in the Work Meeting.
