Foreman City Council Looks Into New Sewage Treatment System

By JESSIE SMITH

During the Oct. 21 regular Foreman City Council meeting, the council and Mayor Bill Harp discussed a $200,000 grant to help fund a new sewage treatment system for the city in the future. Currently, Foreman uses a Rock Reed Filter sewage treatment system.

“Back in the day, the health department said, yeah, that’s the greatest thing since sliced bread,” Harp said. “Turned out a few years later, the system didn’t really work as well as they thought it was going to.”

Harp said most small towns are having to switch to a new system, and the system that Foreman is considering is compact and easy to operate.

Glen Spears is looking into finding the rest of the funding for the new system, according to Harp, and then the project will continue to move forward.
