Lake View city officials are pleased to announce their recently completed lagoon is now filled and is successfully processing wastewater from the community. Administrator, Scott Peterson, says the city council met at the lagoon site just northeast of town prior to their meeting Monday night. He says they did identify one minor issue, but everything seems to be functioning as intended.
Peterson adds the lagoon has now reached the substantial completion stage and all that remains before they can call the project finished is for it to operate for a few months to identify any outstanding issues. Lake View has been working to update their wastewater treatment facility for more than five years, and Peterson says it is a relief to be so close to wrapping it up.
The city started filling the $6 million lagoon about a month ago and only recently has it started treating wastewater. According to Peterson, they will be closely monitoring its operations into the fall and winter for any problems as they check off items on the punch list.
