Bossier City now has the capacity to provide more water to its growing community. The city has expanded and upgraded its current water treatment facility, doubling its water output capacity. The new eighty million dollar treatment plant processes water using a membrane filtration system that helps purify the water more efficiently than the traditional sedimentation system. Utilities Director Jeffery Anderson says both plants will produce about fifty million gallons of water per day. Mayor Lo walker says this new treatment plant has been in the works for five years. "We started recognizing that the way the city and parish was growing and with all the people that receive water from us we need to increase our capacity," said Walker. Mayor Walker says the facility can take care of the city's water needs for decades to come. And because of the new plant special recognition was awarded to Bossier City from the Louisiana Municipal Association. Mayor Walker was presented with the LMA's top prize for Community Achievement Award for the basic services category for municipalities with a population of twenty-five thousand and over.fitration
