Plant closure will cut Sioux City sewer revenues by 7%
February 8, 2010
The John Morrell meatpacking plant, which will be closing in April
, sends an average of 1.1 million gallons of wastewater per day to the Sioux City wastewater plant. The closure of the plant will eliminate that flow and reduce the city's sewer-fee revenues
by about $1.3 million a year, according to the Sioux City Journal. The plant is designed to handle 30 million gallons per day
. Sioux City is not alone in receiving a large proportion of its wastewater flows (and revenues) from food processing; almost all of the major cities in Iowa and Nebraska receive wastewater from food-production facilities.
