Illinois American Water Completes $1.1 Million in Investment Projects at Rosiclare Water Treatment Plant and Wastewater Treatment Plant
Feb 09, 2021
In the first eight months since acquiring the City of Rosiclare water production system and wastewater system, Illinois American Water has invested approximately $1.1 million in upgrades. These projects are part of the company’s commitment to invest $5 million in the first five years of ownership.
Mike Brown, operations superintendent, explained, “Illinois American Water continuously makes improvements to support safety, efficiencies and water quality. We take great pride in delivering drinking water which not only meets Environmental Protection Agency standards but is better than required. Our customers deserve the best product possible.”
Work completed at the water treatment plant includes upgrading security and implementing new technology to support reliability. Structural improvements were made to improve employee safety and security. High service pumps have been procured and will be installed to support reliable water pressure.
Back-up generators were installed at both the water and wastewater plants. The generators support continued, reliable service in the event of severe weather or power outage. Additional improvements at the wastewater treatment plant included replacing effluent pumps. A filter building was also rehabilitated, along with other structural building improvements for employee safety.
Brown said, “Creating a safe working environment is part of our commitment to employee safety. There’s nothing more important.” Brown leads operations for Rosiclare, Hardin County and Cairo. The Cairo District celebrated 21 years without experiencing any lost-time accidents last year.
