In an effort to help accommodate expansion and increased water use by Heartland Corn Products and Dairy Farmers of America as well as keeping a abundant water supply for the city, the two businesses and the City of Winthrop are looking into an advanced water reclamation facility.
The Winthrop City Council approved hiring Kimley-Horn and Associates at a cost of $87,300 to finish a study and move forward with the project. Kimley-Horn specializes in wastewater projects.
City Administrator Michael Looft said that the city would pay for the cost up front but be reimbursed by the other two entities at an equal cost.
