BRAWLEY — Following numerous delays, a dedication ceremony to commemorate the opening of the city's multi-million dollar water treatment plant will be staged Friday morning.
The dedication will begin at noon, with a reception and tours of the plant between 11 a.m. and noon.
State Sen. Jim Battin, state Assemblyman Dave Kelley and representatives from the North American Development Bank and the Border Environmental Cooperation Commission will be at the ceremony, said City Manager Jerry Santillan.
The plant was built to replace the city's ailing water plant on Western Avenue after state officials mandated an upgrade of the city's water service in the early 1990s.
An original grand opening was set for April 1999, but flaws in the new plant's water and sludge ponds delayed the plant from going on line.
