IRONWOOD — After nearly two years of preliminary work, the Ironwood City Commission on Monday approved an engineering service agreement to start the water treatment plant project.

The commission, 5-0, approved the design and project management services with HDR, Inc., of St. Louis Park, Minnesota. The firm will start work on final engineering of the estimated $9.7 million concrete, gravity filtered water treatment plant and pump station to better address manganese and iron water quality issues and discoloration in the city’s water system.
