TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (WTHI) - The Terre Haute Wastewater Treatment Plant is undergoing major renovations expected to be finish in July of 2015.
The largest difference many people in Terre Haute, and other who drive through the south side of the city, will notice is the improved smell. The old ways of storing and treating the water left a overwhelming smell that wafted through much of the south side.
Other improvements include a new laboratory and administration building that will be together under one roof.
The updates are necessary to get the plant up to code with the standards of the Environmental Protection Agency.
Hundreds of workers from local unions are working on the project.
The undertaking will also change the way the plant treats wastewater, eliminating some of the chemicals and utilizing a new process involving solar technology.
As of September, the project is about three and a half months ahead of schedule.
