At their last meeting the Buffalo City Council heard a report of another problem at their relatively new waste water treatment plant.
The problem has surfaced in the chlorine generator, according to City Works Director Les Hook, who gave a more in-depth look into the situation to the council.
Mayor Randy Dyess asked if there are alternate ways of putting chlorine in the system, and Hook explained they can order chlorine by the tanker load but they really don't have any way to offload it from the truck into the storage tank, saying that is why these newer treatment plants generate their own chlorine on-site.
Hook explains the waste water plant's normal process that is now not working.
Hook said he hoped the manufacturer will have a technician onsite as soon as possible. He told the council that he may have overtime for some employees as they will be “babysitting” the plant until it is repaired.
