TAYLOR, Ala. (WDHN) — A 6-year-long project has finally been completed in the City of Taylor as they now can lay claim to a wastewater treatment plant.

On Tuesday, city officials gathered to unveil and celebrate the new structure located off Taylor Road and Friendship Lane in Taylor.

The $5 million plant can hold nearly 350,000 gallons of water on a daily basis and will take in the waste from the city and turn it into clean water.

For years, the city has been attached to the City of Dothan’s Water Treatment Plant, but now the city has its own.

Which they say could bring more businesses and people to Taylor

“This water treatment plant means that we can control our growth. We can have more growth, more industry, and more residences,” says Mayor Billy Snell.

Mayor Snell adds that the plant will replenish the waterway that sits behind it and will provide clean water for the city and the surrounding wildlife

The plant goes online Monday, August 14.
