The results of a study commissioned by the city of Hannibal on alternatives to how it treats its drinking water will be the subject of a public meeting later this month.

Last fall, the city asked an independent engineering firm to study the cost and feasibility of implementing a Granulated Activated Carbon filtration system for its water, as an alternative to the current process that uses chloramines.

Representatives of Jacobs Engineering will present the results of the study Wednesday, March 22nd at 5:30 p.m. in the Roland Fine Arts Center on the campus of Hannibal-LaGrange University. The public is invited to attend.

In the meantime, the study has been posted on both the city’s and BPW’s websites for viewing, downloading and/or printing.
