GREEN RIVER — The City of Green River will be removing trees on East Teton Boulevard in front of the Waste Water Treatment Plant to make way for a new 12-inch water line.
The water line will connect to the new treatment plant, which will be built next year. The $27 million dollar treatment plant will be built just south of the existing plant and ponds. Construction is to begin next spring.
Jason Palmer, Environmental Systems Superintendent, said they are removing the trees now because of the convenience of the tree pile located across the street in the rodeo grounds parking lot.
The removal of the trees is in addition to the trees along East Teton that were damaged in September by the wind storm.
