The city plans to upgrade an aging water treatment plant in the downtown historic district and, as an added benefit, install benches, fountains and decorative walls that blend the facility into Old Town's quaint character.

The $6.5-million project aims to improve water service by building a new 2.2-million-gallon underground reservoir with modernized generators and treatment machinery. The city also will tear down the water district offices at the corner of Prospect and Main streets for parking lots.

Plans call for a fountain, planters and a decorative wall surrounding the site. The city's plans for the water treatment plant are in line with this desire to spruce up the historic district, City Manager William A. Huston said.

"It's only fair we follow the same approach," he said.
