Filter at fault for spill at plant
Placeholder Image
MONROE - The Monroe Wastewater Treatment Plant had a malfunction Thursday when a portion of water meant to go through its final process did not make it. Utilities Supervisor Mike Kennison said the spill at the plant was final affluent, or chlorinated water, that was meant to run through the last filter but instead fell into the backwash tank, which overflowed. The water was meant to go through a sand filter to be stripped of its chlorine before being released into Honey Creek.
