Portales seeking to build new wastewater plant

Posted: Updated:

Portales, NM -  The city of Portales is now seeking to build a new wastewater plant. 

The city council will hold a public hearing over the project today at its regular meeting.

The city is applying for a 27-million dollar loan from the New Mexico Environment Department.

Officials say the plant is needed to meet state standards and sustain the growing population.

They add the current system is outdated and was never designed to handle both residential and industrial sewage.
