Groundbreaking at the sewer plant Quartzsite, AZ - The day fi nally arrived when up- grades to the Quartzsite's sewer system became a re- ality. "This is a very important day for the future of Quartzsite," said Town Manager Jim Ferguson. Dave Burlingham, Construction Superintendent at Jonovich Companies, announced the project should be completed by November 1st, instead of the end of the year previously projected. "This town recognizes the importance of its infra- strucure. It's a committment to the future of the Town," said Ferguson. The changes will eliminate possible sewage overfl ow during wet weather times and increase capacity, allowing for future growth. Mayor Norm Simpson said, "We have something that's sustainable now and fi nally are moving for- ward." For more details contact Quartzsite Town Hall, 928-927-4333.
