Council Oks baseball field water plan

The Olney City Council approved a plan to allow the school district to use reverse-osmosis water discharged by Tower Extrusions to irrigate the new baseball field complex. The Council discussed the plan at its Nov. 14 meeting and determined that the 5,000 to 10,000 gallons of water diverted to the ball fields would not affect the city wastewater system. Tower will have to obtain a wastewater discharge permit and have state inspectors pass the system, Interim Public Works Director Michael Jacoba told the Council.
