Treatment plant groundbreaking marks near-end of the Southwest Water pipeline project
From washing clothes to watering cattle, the Southwest Water Pipeline Project will bring some welcomed water to area residents.
The moment that water begins flowing is growing increasingly closer, as recently noted at a ceremonial groundbreaking ceremony last Tuesday for a water treatment plant north of Zap.
Actual construction on the water treatment plant began Nov. 8 on a site about seven miles north of Zap along County Road 13. The plant will treat water from Lake Sakakawea and send the membrane-filtered water through 33 miles of pipeline to the communities of Zap, Hazen, Stanton and Center as well as rural customers and every power plant and mine along the way.
