Yes. The City of IGH was one of the first in Minnesota to treat drinking water for radium using sand filtration. These filters have aged, and technology has improved since they were installed in 1998 and updated in 2006. The City has budgeted approximately $2 million to update the City’s water treatment plant in 2024, including updating its filtration systems to better address radium removal. Because the City has only one water treatment facility, it cannot take the facility completely off-line while the system is updated, requiring that the filter replacement occur in a phased manner to keep the water treatment facility operational.
