Open house set at Indian Hills GID

Staff reports

The Indian Hills General Improvement District will hold an open house for its new Water Treatment Plant on March 20 from 1 to 5 p.m. for residents, visitors and the general public to visit and tour the new facility, located at Hobo Hot Springs Road.

“At a cost of approximately $1.7 million, this new treatment facility and the major new well it serves represent the district’s most recent significant investment in securing the water supply future for an expanding residential population in the district, as well as for future commercial growth at the north end of Douglas County,” said Jim Bentley, IHGID general manager.

This facility went “on-line” on Jan. 26, using Calgon’s activated charcoal water filtering technology, preparing up to 1,400 gallons of water per minute for delivery into the domestic water system. Calgon representatives will be on hand during the open house to answer any questions about how that technology works in this plant. District staff will be available to discuss the operations of the plant and its capacities.

According to Bentley, “The filtering and pumping capabilities of this new plant represent domestic water supply and water quality security for the residents of Indian Hills for years into the future. And, in conjunction with inter-connections between systems done recently, this facility also provides a new level of water storage and fire-flow protection for the District.”

Refreshments will be served. For information, call 267-2805.
