Another step toward a loan for water plant

From the Alamogordo Daily News - By John Bear, Staff Writer - he Alamogordo City Commission on Tuesday took the first step toward obtaining $1.1 million in state-distributed federal loan money for designing a desalination plant and related infrastructure. City Utilities Director Brian Cesar said Tuesday that money not expended on the design of the mobile desalination plant can be rolled over into another loan the city can use for actual construction.
     The city has plans to build a mobile desalination plant at a city water treatment facility and pump brackish ground water in from well fields north of Tularosa. Brackish water has a salt content that makes it unsuitable to drink but has a lower salinity than sea water. The federal government granted the city permission last year to build several wells and pipeline to transport water which will be purified for municipal use.
