Sweeny sign

SWEENY — City Council is moving ahead with recommendations it hopes will start to clear up issues surrounding the city’s dirty-looking water.

The city, during a special meeting April 10, approved funds to repair two softeners installed in 1996, which far outlasted their projected life span of 15 to 20 years of use for the resin media, an ionized substance used to soften water by replacing minerals and metals with materials such as sodium. Those softeners are being bypassed for the time being as one method of addressing Sweeny’s water troubles.
