The City of Moab will host a ribbon cutting ceremony at the new wastewater reclamation facility at 2 p.m. Thursday, Dec. 13. The new facility is designed to process nearly two million gallons of wastewater daily and stay in operation close to 30 years while making future expansion easier and the environment cleaner.  The older facility across the street was built in the 1950s and will be demolished to restore native vegetation. The city invites the community to attend the celebration at 1007 West 400 North.
