Officials discuss water filtration

June 11, 2002|by MARLO BARNHART

CLEAR SPRING - Faced with the choices of either filtering the water they have or finding a new pure source of water that needs no filtration, Clear Spring town officials are keeping their options open.

But Maryland Department of the Environment engineer Shantini Senanayake said Monday night she feels certain that ultimately some type of filtration will be necessary.

"Even if you drill more wells, you may not get more water or better water," she said. Coupled with the filtration plan is the prospect of building a water tower to store treated water, a project the town has long anticipated.

After some spirited discussion, Mayor Paul Hose Jr. proposed that the town proceed with the paperwork for a filtration system financed by a loan from the State of Maryland.

But the door was left open for exploration of new water sources as well as the town loaning itself the money for the water storage tank.
