The Crossville City Council has wrapped up 2017 by giving approval to several items on their docket. The council took action on the matter of running a water and sewer line to the Meadow Park Water Treatment Plant. The line will run along Lantana Road at an estimated cost of $1,488,000. The Council approved the creation of a Crossville Sports Council that would be made up of diversified citizens that would work to promote and recruit athletic events, particularly involving youth, to come to the area. Approval was given to extend a proposal from the city to sell up to 1 million gallons of water to the Crab Orchard Utility District at current rates with no minimum purchase. Finally, the council tasked City Manager Greg Woods to meet with engineers on the possibility of processing wastewater into potable water. Council Member JH Graham has stated in the past that “the city is in the water business.” Graham says that through new technologies, the filtering process is less costly than piping in water from areas such as Watts Bar, with the end result being as fresh as “a glass of sparkling ice water”
