City officials are asking the Iowa City City Council to approve design details for the Wastewater Treatment Facilities Consolidation Project — a project that will cost the city roughly $40 million.

The plan calls to eliminate the north plant — at 1000 S. Clinton St. — and move all wastewater treatment operations to the south plant, 4366 Napoleon St. S.E.

The north plant was inoperable for around a month after the 2008 flood; the south plant continued to operate because of its higher location.

Officials plan to eventually convert the north plant site into green space as part of the Riverfront Crossings project.

A public hearing will be held at the City Council's formal meeting on Jan. 24. A bid date is scheduled for March 20.
