Water Issues

La Harpe's City Council met on Monday June 11, at 7:00 p.m. at La Harpe City Hall and heard City employee Tim Graves report that they need to replace the settling tubes at the water plant at the reservoir. Tim said he had a quote from Tonka Equipment for $2950. Council approved this maintenance issue.

Graves also reported that the chemical testing that is done through the EPA is due.

Just for the sampling of the water for the year, the cost is $4584. Graves is going to check with a company out of Peoria, PDC Laboratories, to see if it can be done any cheaper through their facilities.
