Wastewater treatment project on schedule


Officials say construction is on schedule and on budget for Willmar's new $86.2 million wastewater treatment plant and conveyance system.

With the exception of recent heavy rain that slowed work, progress has been good, said Aaron Nelson, field engineer for Graham Construction Services of Eagan, the project's general contractor.

"We've been fortunate to have a dry summer, a dry spring,'' Nelson said. "We have a pretty good team of subcontractors working with us.''
