Jackson Springs Water Treatment Plant is up and running

Posted:

After more than a decade of planning and hard work the $28.8 million Jackson Springs Water Treatment Plant is up and running.
 
A ribbon cutting ceremony Tuesday morning marked the official opening of the plant.  Forty-three percent of Rapid City's water supply comes from the Jackson Springs Treatment Center, making it a very important part of the city.  Sixteen years ago plant managers were told something had to be done to improve the quality of the water.  Today, people at the plant say there is no doubt that it's pumping some of the best water in the state. "We were in violation those things happened but I'm saying this is a state of the art facility and it's going to supply us a tremendous amount of water," Water Advocacy Task Force member J.P. Duniphan said.
 
The plant opened back in the 40's, and was rebuilt in the 70's after it was destroyed by the 1972 flood.
