Fairmont, Minnesota, known as the City of Lakes, is located in Martin County in southern Minnesota. The city’s water treatment plant serves a mix of customers including approximately 3,900 residential taps, 500 commercial and 17 industrial customers. Looking to the future, Fairmont city leaders began to investigate upgrading the city’s water treatment plant in 2010. The existing plant had been in operation for well over 70 years and relied on gas chlorine for disinfection.
