Public invited to tour upgraded water facilities
DIXON – In a room filled with the sound of humming, a big vat of what looks like muddy water is diluted.
Hydrous manganese oxide doesn’t look pleasant and easily stains, water department Superintendent Rusty Cox said, but it bonds with radium, allowing the potentially dangerous element to be filtered from the city’s drinking water.
Dixon residents will get a chance to tour the water department’s upgraded facilities during an open house from 2 to 4 p.m. Sunday.
