Bismarck Wastewater Treatment Plant undergoes repairs

By  | 

BISMARCK, N.D. - You may have seen more construction at the waste water treatment plant in south Bismarck.

But that's not the only thing you'll notice when driving by.

Because of emergency grit removal project, the city will use lagoons to balance wastewater flows.

The temporary fix will produce some abnormal smells through the end of the week.

“Wind direction is the biggest one. I would like to see a nice east wind and blow it towards the river, but I guess a lot of the is going to depend on the wind the direction. The wind speed on who is going to get it and how much. You get some windier days, you probably won't smell much at all,” said Wastewater Plant Superintendent Travis Carufel.

Carufel says crews are working around the clock and there will be no changes to the quality of the water.
