Work Is Under Way At Sudan Pump Station
Thursday, July 30, 2015
The City of Lubbock expects to have a more consistent product as a result of the work currently underway at the Sudan Pumping Station located east of Muleshoe on Hwy. 84., in Bailey County.

The pumping station, recognized most readily because the large metal geodesic dome over its reservoir, is in the process of improving its sterilization process by switching from a gaseous process to a liquid process, according to Curtis McDole of Lubbock’s Water Treatment Department.

Beginning about a month ago, and expected to reach substantial completion in October of this year when the new process can be placed in operation, and final completion April 2016, the project is expected to resolve the problems it’s been having with its chlorine residual as the water it produces is pumped to homes and businesses in Lubbock.

MISD To Focus On ‘Growth’
Thursday, July 30, 2015
Muleshoe Independent School District Director of Operations Dani Heathington talked about the district’s change from a focus on passing to one of “growth” during the school board’s first reading of the district’s action plan at Monday’s regular meeting.

At Superintendent Dr. R.L. Richards’ suggestion, Heathington explained that the change — which was the final item noted in the action plan developed by the district administrators and board members in an all-day meeting in June, would impact the students in grades three through eighth most.

“We have to start looking at growth,” she said. “It’s not just pass or fail now.”
