Fargo Water plant expansion in the works

FARGO, N.D. (KFGO AM) -- Fargo city leaders hope to start work this fall on a $95 million expansion to the city's water treatment plant which will result in better tasting water.

City Enterprise Director Bruce Grubb says the new section will be able to handle large quantities of bromide and sulfate, which leave a salty taste.

The expansion will also be able to handle dissolved pharmaceuticals.

The project is being funded through a $30 million state grant and a Fargo infrastructure sales tax.

It's expected to take about three years to complete.
