Clinton Lake could be used in emergency
Potable water could be produced at Clinton Lake in an emergency but not for long, Severn Trent project manager Jeromy Brush told the Clinton City Council at its last meeting.
Asked by Councilman Don Rodolph how long it would take to get the lake’s water treatment plant up and operating in an emergency, Brush replied, “I could have water running in three days.”
But he then explained that there was only a 10-day supply of chlorine on hand to treat the water. And that’s assuming there’s water in the lake to be treated.
