November 1966

The City advertises for proposals to build a pipeline for sludge disposal to the wellfield. A November 20 News-Press article cites Public Works Director Roger Nooe, who states that “The dumping pits off Henderson are filled.” A November 30 article about the same topic adds, “…the sludge is a non-contaminating mineral mixture, it has no value and is a nuisance to water plant officials.” It is unknown exactly when the City stopped utilizing the South Street pits.
