Sackets Harbor Residents Tour New $9M Treatment Plant
It wasn't a typical open house in Sackets Harbor Tuesday.
Visitors were given a first-hand look at the village's brand new, state-of-the-art sewage treatment plant and new Department of Public Works garage.
The $9 million project, at the site of the old treatment plant, had been in the works for more than a decade.
Community members who toured it say it was worth the money.
"We really need to thank the community for being patient with all the construction process as we worked through that," said Kris Dimmick, vice president of architect Bernier, Carr and Asscoiates.
"I think it's a lot more sanitary and a lot more green," said Sackets Harbor resident Dorothy Arnold, "and we'll see a lot of good things come from it."
The new facility has already received awards for its focus on environmental sustainability.
Federal stimulus money paid for some of the work.
