SEBRING — It has been 11 years in the making but the Spring Lake Improvement District will finally own a back-up water plant. The district board has wanted to have a back-up water plant to protect its residents in the event the main water plant on Castile Road is ever knocked out of service for any reason.

“I have always wanted to have a redundancy water supply system,” Director of Operations Clay Shrum said. “I knew the facility was there. I have been in contact with the water management district, the health department, Department of Environmental Protection Agency, our engineers and with Florida Rural Water Association on bringing this up to standards.”
