Grand Island Officials Break Ground On Head Works Project

6-12-13 - headworks ceremony


With the scoop of a shovel, city officials, plant employees and other onlookers broke ground Wednesday on the Headworks project for Grand Island's wastewater treatment plant.


The Grand Island Public Works Department is building a new facility to replace aging equipment and also accommodate increasing waste as the city continues to grow.


City Public Works Director John Collins says when the new facility is built; it will be put to good use.


Grand Island Mayor Jay Vavricek says the headworks project is one of the most fundamental, but essential projects for the city as it continues to grow.


The new headworks facility is a two year $17 million project to increase waste capacity for the city as it continues to grow.


The project is expected to be finished sometime in 2015.
