We Will Give You 10.00 c. G Study Growing Need for Water in Southwest R. Bv Mike lieu pro? /Rapid industrial expansion in the southwest section of Cedar Rapids** is bringing nearer a decision on how water service will be Increased to meet the industries needs “That s a problem thai we’re studying right now. how to get more waler down to that area," said lee Coppock. superintendent of the water w'orks “The decision will probably have lo be made in a year on what to do We’re going to have to start major construction next year.” By major construction, Cop-pock is referring to stopgap measures, such as extra feeder lines from the Chandler hill reservoir City Hall Notes Eventually, something more extensive will have to be done Coppock thinks it may he wise to consider building a second water treatment plant and well field south of town It's not the amount of water needed, hut the location of the need, that influences his thinking. As far as capacity is concerned, the present plant on Shaver road NE should be good enough for many years It has a capacity of 36 million gallons daily; the most ever pumped was 27 HO million gallons one day iii September, 1971. BIT HAVING adequate water available isn t the same thing as having it where it is needed. To get the water to the southwest quadrant will require more water mains and booster stations. Mike Deupreo A Ifi-m< h main to the Wilson booster station was tied into the water system in February arui is now handling about four million gallons daily Only a little of that is for residences, tho rest for industry. Industrial uses account for more than Half the water pumped in Cedar Rapids as a whole, and the proportion of industrial use in the southwest quadrant is even higher. “We have some users down there that draw approximately two million gallons a day,” Coppock said He added that the future holds more of the same type of expansion, with the hulk of industry settling in the southwest. “The mains are going to have to come hack almost to the plant to got the necessary capacity,” he said The additional mains wouldn’t be necessary if a second water works were built But wouldn't a second plant cost a lot to build? "Well, you talk about feeder mains through the downtown area, and you’re talking about a lot of money, too,” Coppock said Besides, he added, instead of putting the money into feeder mains it could lie put into a new well field and treatment plant which will eventually he necessary, anyway, although not for many years • • • THE SOUTHWEST industrial area is the only one Coppock feels calls for major changes in the near future. There are less serious problems everywhere, of course, such as a pressure shortage in some paris of Cedar Hills. A new standpipe, with a one million gallon capacity, located HH feet higher than I he* present storage facility, should take care of the pressure problem Bids will be taken on the new standpipe later this month, hilt it will probably be 15-18 months before construction is finished. “A standpipe like that, prior lo mid-1973, you’d expect to see completed in four months,” Coppock said The delaying factor is a shortage of steel plates, he explained There are no particular supply problems on the east side of the river. A few extensions ot water mains are planned, Coppock said, and he is also looking at some outlying areas ( that are served with only one main. “We d like to he able, if we have a break in a main, to continue to feed from another direction,” he said.
