Open house offers tour of Eudora wastewater plant About 50 people turned out to get a closer look at Eudora’s new wastewater treatment plant Saturday. Burns & McDonnell engineering company, Kansas City, Mo., and CAS Construction Company, Topeka, sponsored the open house. Both companies had worked on the planning and construction of the plant. “We just wanted to invite people down to see where their tax dollars went,” said John Mitchell, engineer with Burns & McDonnell. The plant was constructed from August 1998 to April 1999, much faster than the normal time of three years, Mitchell said. It was also constructed for about $2.8 million $2 million less than similar plants. The plant is currently running at about 50 percent, Mitchell said, because it was designed to grow with the city with a 20-year window period. It handles about 400,000 gallons of water a day, but it has the capability to treat a million gallons. “What comes in is dingy and dirty, and what comes out is crystal clear,” Mitchell said. Above, plant operator Ed Hickman, background, takes Alberta Pyle, Eudora, on a tour of the plant Saturday. ___________________________________________ Journal-World update: New weather map available Monday Starting in Monday’s Journal-World, you’ll find a redesigned weather page with an easier-to-read format.
