Clewiston Water Plant Opens

Congressman Mahoney On Hand For Ribbon Cut

Friday Congressman Tim Mahoney joined Clewiston Mayor Molly Soto Chamness, Clewiston City Commissioners, City Council members, City Utilities staff, U.S.D.A. Rural Development, U.S. Sugar and South Florida Water Management District for a ribbon cutting and grand opening of Clewiston�s state-of-the-art water production and treatment plant facility. 

The new environmentally friendly reverse osmosis facility has the capacity to produce up to 3 million gallons of high quality water per day and will provide services to 7200 customers in Glades, Hendry and Palm Beach Counties, meaning the water will no longer be drawn from Lake Okeechobee.

"This water plant is a monument to how local and federal government can come together and provide citizens access to critical resources," said Congressman Mahoney.  "This plant not only demonstrates Clewiston�s commitment to preserve the environment, but it is a key element in providing the infrastructure the town requires to attract new industry."

"Today is a great day in America�s sweetest town. I�m very excited to have Congressman Mahoney here, as he continues to show a great interest in our community and our rural way of life,? said Clewiston Mayor Mali Soto Chamness.
