Six months after the Rawlins City Council authorized the emergency expenditure, the $90,000 set of screens for Filter #4 arrived at the water treatment plant. Filter #4 came back online earlier this week, increasing the capacity at the treatment plant by 25 percent.

Although the arrival and installation of the new screens do not solve all of Rawlins’ water woes, it’s still a reason to celebrate. As Bigfoot 99 reported over the summer, the failed screens in Filters #1 and #4 at the treatment plant were identified as the source of the city’s EPA turbidity violations. Cali O’Hare has the latest.
