City seeking new water engineer

PEC, City split

   Less than two years after the last one was hired, the City of Clinton is looking for a new engineer to help with its search for a long-term solution to its water problems.

   “We have mutually parted ways,” City Manager Steve Hewitt said Tuesday of the city’s relationship with Tulsa-based Professional Engineering Consultants. “They will complete the geo-probe project at the golf course and provide us with a report. However, all other operations have ended, and we are looking for a new engineer to take over our water issues.”

   PEC had given the city advice on various projects including a recommendation to tap the Washita Alluvium with three wells and build a new $25-million in-town water treatment plant. However, the City Council had grown increasingly frustrated with its work.
