Fixing the Problem at the Source – the Pipestone Water Treatment Plant

The City of Pipestone faced a series of issues with both their water and wastewater treatment systems. The ground water supply used for drinking water contained elevated levels of Gross Alpha, a radionuclide regulated by the Environmental Protection Agency and Minnesota Department of Health as a potential carcinogen. The existing facility, constructed in 1919, had no treatment capabilities and was limited in its ability to be modified due to being a historical site.
