The Madison City Commission has approved a couple of agreements to sell a portion of the city’s Lewis and Clark Rural Water System water capacity to Clay Rural Water System. During their meeting Monday, commissioners approved agreements with Lewis and Clark and also with Clay Rural Water System Incorporation for this. City Engineer Chad Comes said that the city of Madison is not yet connected to the Lewis and Clark Rural Water System project, but this would be for a portion of the city’s allocation.
Comes explained to commissioners some of what the city’s agreement with Clay Rural Water System entails.
Comes said that the city would not incur any additional costs with this agreement, and that there will be more benefits to the city in the future.
Comes said that Clay Rural Water System’s agreement with the City of Madison is one of three agreements the system is working on. He said the water system also has an agreement with another member for a wheeling system similar to what the city of Madison currently has in place.
