Water-purification plant dedicated in Bremerton
A $6 million water-purification plant was dedicated on Wednesday, Aug. 24 in Bremerton. The project was funded by federal stimulus dollars and supported 120 jobs!
As published in the Kitsap Sun:
“A new $6 million water-purification plant will allow Bremerton to continue drawing much of its drinking water from the Casad Dam on the Union River while avoiding a far-more-costly filtration plant, city officials say.
The new plant, to be dedicated Wednesday, uses ultraviolet light in addition to chlorine to ensure that the water is disinfected to the highest quality under all conditions, said Kathleen Cahall, Bremerton’s water resources manager.
The plant was fully funded with $6 million from the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act, the 2009 stimulus program designed to increase jobs while rebuilding the nation’s infrastructure. Bremerton’s project supported about 120 workers during design and construction, according to city figures.”
