What's New
  • The Office and Garage Building Project involves construction of a new administrative office building and a garage/laboratory/locker room building. These facilities are being relocated to accommodate the Phase II wastewater treatment plant upgrade project. Project construction activities began in July 2015 and will be complete by the end of 2016.

  • On July 10, 2015, new members and other representatives of the Lower Burrell Municipal Authority (LBMA) visited the MSANK treatment plant to familiarize themselves with the plant operations and procedures. During the tour, the representatives learned about the functions of each of the facilities' systems. The tour was productive and the visitors learned a lot.
  • MSANK has completed Phase 1 upgrades to the wastewater treatment plant (WWTP). Construction began in November 2007 and the new facilities are now fully operational.
