In Napoleon, city leaders on Saturday, toured the water treatment plant, as plans for a large-scale rehabilitation of the facility are being made.
The tour gave council members a good chance to see what needs to be done at the plant, as they prepare to decide how to proceed with the massive upcoming project.
Initially estimated to cost about $16 million, that figure ballooned to $24 million by October 2013.
That was before officials learned last April, that part of the site for the proposed new plant, was a designated wetland, and therefore off limits.
Council voted earlier this month, to move forward with an upgrade to the current facility, which is now expected to cost between $13-$15 million.
Napoleon is up against an October 2016 deadline by the EPA to make improvements to the city water system.
