Iron Removal Plant

Beginning in 2018, the existing Iron Removal Plant (IRP) that treats our City water supply began to near the end of its useful life. Through numerous presentations, research, cost comparisons, and public input, City Council debated the option to replace the Iron Removal Plant, the cost of connecting to the Lansing Board of Water and Light, the ability to include water softening in the future, the potential changes to water softening options over time, and the possibility of a City “preferred vendor” arrangement for home-based water softening systems.

On November 23, 2020, City Council moved to replace the IRP, which would be designed to add water softening in the future, if determined. To view a timeline of City Council action, bids, resolutions, and research, click here.
