Candidates Tour Great Falls Water Treatment Plant

Posted: Updated:

Mayoral candidate Aaron Pursell and city commissioner candidate Aart Doleman got an in depth look at the Great Falls Water Treatment Plant for a few good reasons.

"I wanted to come tour the water plant just to see how the system works and how the operation is. I know it is an important resource here in Great Falls. I wanted to see the great job the folks here do to provide the vital resource of water that we rely on everyday," said Pursell.

Doleman added,"The water we get from the Missouri River is one of the most important assets for the future. I wanted to have a better understanding of how the system operated and how the community could deal with expanding population and attracting businesses."

After the tour, the candidates said they were surprised by the amount of hard work that goes into treating water. They also spoke more about what they learned from their visit.

"I learned its quite impressive process and the people here do a wonderful job. Its a great facility and there is a lot that goes on without having taken a tour you wouldn't think of when you turn on the water. I think it was important to come look at how the process is done. How they take the river water and turn it into what we see every day when we turn on the tap," said Pursell. 

"I learned this is a very efficient and complicated process. I am impressed at how the system works," said Doleman.
