Lake Hopatcong, a small lake in South Carolina, has leased a $500,000-per-year lease from the federal government to run a $2 million water treatment plant.
The project, which will be operated by the federal Department of the Interior, will begin in late 2018, with construction beginning in 2019, and the plant to be completed by 2021.
The lake’s lease was issued in June 2020.
Lake Hopataug’s new owners will pay the federal Government for the water treatment and distribution plant and use the facility to treat wastewater generated at the facility, according to the lease.
The plant is expected to be able to produce 50 million gallons of wastewater a day.
The water will be piped to a large distribution system for use by local and state government agencies, including the University of South Carolina.
Lake Liberty, a lake in Georgia, also is on the lease with the federal agency.
The lease for that lake was issued earlier this year.
Lake Bora, a large lake in Florida, has also leased a lease with federal agency to operate a wastewater treatment plant, according the lease for the Florida lake.
The Lake Bora facility is expected by 2020 to be fully operational.
Lake Riggins, a huge lake in Montana, has a similar deal with the Department of Interior to run an additional wastewater treatment facility and a wastewater distribution system.
The facility, to be operated jointly by the agency and Montana Water, is expected in 2022.
Lake Lake, a massive lake in Illinois, has signed a lease to operate the water and wastewater treatment and processing facility that the department will use to process the water.
The state of Illinois, which is part of the Lake Riggins-Lake Liberty contract, has not yet received a renewal of the contract.
The Department of Energy also has a lease agreement with Lake Huron that will be implemented in late 2021.
Lake Hurons lease expires at the end of 2020.
