SPRING CREEK, Ill. — The Springfield Metro Sanitary District is beginning to get ready to move locations as the city nears completion of its new $120 million wastewater treatment plant, according to The State Journal-Register.

“Spring Creek is expected to be 95 percent completed by the end of the year,” said Gregg Humphrey, executive director of the Springfield Metro Sanitary District. “There may be a little touch-up work in the spring, but then our emphasis will be on finishing the design for Sugar Creek near the fall or winter of 2014.”

In 2009 construction began on the new plant on Spring Creek near Veterans Parkway and Eighth Street.
