Groundbreaking planned for new La Salle waste water plant

Posted by wlpo on November 19, 2009

The rain has softened the site of a new waste water treatment plant in La Salle.  A groundbreaking for the additional plant is at 1pm. 

The plant will be on the east side of the Little Vermilion River and serve areas to the east of the river.

To build the plant, La Salle is receiving $15 million in federal stimulus money.  One fourth of the $15 million will not need to be paid back.  The rest will be paid back, interest free over the next 20 years.

The largest phase of the plant is being done by Rockford contractor, Sjostrom and Sons for $11.7 million.
