LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - Lubbock has already spent millions of dollars and will spend even more for sewer improvements on opposite sides of town.  City Council on Wednesday considers a $1.6 million contract with Alan Plummer Associates of Fort Worth to do the engineering study on a possible new sewer plant in Northwest Lubbock.  The location for such a facility has not yet been chosen.

Meanwhile, work continues on the current sewer plant in Southeast Lubbock.  City council is asked to make minor changes in the $45 million project.  Also the City Council is asked to spend $147,100 on a contract extension for outside experts.  Their job is to help the city to not pollute the groundwater with nitrates when spreading wastewater on the city's farm land east of town.
