Crews work on retrofitting an unused clearwell tank at the Maryville Water Treatment Plant in July to accommodate a granular activated carbon adsorber. The city has announced inclusion of funds in next year's budget for a pilot water treatment plant.

MARYVILLE, Mo. — A pilot water treatment plant, which would gather necessary data to be used in the construction of a full, new treatment facility, is included in the city’s plans for next year’s budget at a cost of up to $1 million.

It would be yet another step toward building a new water treatment plant to replace the existing facility — originally built in 1959 — that has increasingly run up against its limits in recent years, unable to combat a cyanobacteria problem on Mozingo Lake that has grown more intense over the past decade.
