Tenaska negotiates for Stamford water

June 18, 2011

The Jones County town of Stamford has announced it's in contract negotiations with Tenaska, the coal power electric plant being designed for Sweetwater.
In a news conference Friday afternoon, Stamford Mayor Johnny Anders, Junior said they are negotiating to sell waste water and excess city water for the proposed Trailblazer Energy Center.
There have been concerns amongst the community about selling the water to Tenaska, but Mayor Anders said it will do nothing but benefit the town and the plant.
Waste water from the city's waste water treatment plant and Lake Stamford would be the sources of the city water to be sold to Tenaska.
In the proposal, Stamford would receive funds immediately and would have an ongoing source of revenue for at least 30 years, once the project goes into operation.
The mayor would not release any details about the plant and water usage or when the two might finalize a contract. He did however state that both the city and Tenaska would benefit from an agreement.
The mayor thinks they are about 75 percent done with the contract negotiations and has no reason to believe they won't reach an agreement.
The city will hold an open house Monday, July 11, at the Stamford Community Center to tell residents about the agreement, and address any concerns.

The people in these small communities need to take a stand for their future. There is no future without water. Tenaska does not care about Stamford or Sweetwater in the years to come. They just need their blood/oops! water.

truth be told

They are willing to buy that water, water that is waste water that comes from our waste water treatment plant. Water that no-one will drink or water their lawns with. We can also sell them the water from Oak Creek as we no longer use that lake to drink form either. We get all our water from our well fields. I do not understand why the opposition to Tenaska do not post what type of water they are going to use just saying water muddies this issue.
