Ground Broken for Hamilton Water Plant

Hamilton, IL – Construction is expected to be completed by May of next year. The new plant will generate about one million gallons of water per day. The project is expected to cost more than $3.5 million. It will be paid for through loans, grants, and city money. Water and Sewer Superintendent Tim Schilson says the new plant will not have a significant impact on water rates, which were increased substantially several years ago in preparation for the new facility.
