Design phase continues on utility projects in Weirton

WEIRTON — City officials continue to work toward implementing a proposed expansion of Weirton’s two utility treatment plants.

During meetings of both the Weirton Sanitary Board and Weirton Area Water Board Thursday, the boards received an update from Jonathan Carpenter of Thrasher Engineering, who explained the project remains in the design phase.

“We’re still making progress on the design,” Carpenter said.

Under the proposals, both the water treatment plant and the wastewater treatment plant would be expanded from their current 4 million-gallons-per-day treatment capacity to 8 million gallons per day.

Carpenter said the state is reviewing various aspects of the plans, and he is in the process of scheduling site visits and meetings with staff before the designs can be completed.
