Revised plans for a potential new Roswell water plant will be the focus of a June 14 public information open house.

The event will be at the Roswell Adult Recreation Center, 830 Grimes Bridge Road, from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m.

In March, the city held two open house meetings on the proposed new water plant. Input from the public at those two meetings was taken into account when the plans were refined.

Roswell’s current water plant is nearly 80 years old and needs to be replaced. Without the new plant, the city’s water production costs will continue to increase at a faster pace than if a new plant was built. It is forecast that a new water plant will save the City $11.6 million over a 20-year period in water purchases from Fulton County and repair and refurbishment costs needed for the old plant.
