Hard Labor Creek Reservoir Governing Bodies Reduce Capacity Of Planned Water Treatment Plant After Receiving Cost Estimates

***Oconee County Contribution Fixed***

The Hard Labor Creek Reservoir Management Board and Walton County Water and Sewer Authority last week voted to revise the design capacity of their planned water treatment plant from 16 million gallons per day to 12 million gallons per day.

The two bodies took the action in a called joint meeting after learning that the projected cost of construction of the water treatment plant has increased by more than 62 percent--from $96 million to more than $155.8 million.
