Timber Water Treatment Facility Repairs (completed project)

Timber Water FacilityThe water treatment facility, built in 1972, had water intrusion issues that caused severe dry rot in the West, North, and South sides of the building.  Failure of the building posed a danger to the newly installed water treatment equipment contained within, valued at approximately $200,000.  The extent of this damage required that the roof and much of the SW wall, along with portions of the SE and NW walls, be reconstructed to correct the water intrusion issues and make the building structurally sound.  In 2011, $118,750 in CDBG funds were awarded to Timber Water Association for the structural improvements - serving 146 persons.
