WEST POINT, Miss. (WTVA) — The city of West Point has accepted a bid for $2.4 million to have a new water and sewer line installed to the Yokohama Tire plant.

The water line will have a pump station, and there will be a new 14-inch line that goes to the new water tower that will be built on the Yokohama site.

Additionally, a 10-inch sewer line from the plant will come back to a location near the pump station.

It is expected that the new plant will use 1.2 million gallons of water a day and produce 400,000 to 600,000 gallons of wastewater each day.

"The city's commitment is to have the water tower built and the water and sewer lines in place by October 1st of 2014," said Dwight Prisock, superintendent of West Point Water & Light Department, "which gives us a little less than 12 months."

In order for the city to construct the line and provided the service to Yokohama, the current White Station Water Association will have to be merged into the city.
