(KUTV) - Right now there\u2019s a high amount of growth in southern Utah.{\/p}More than 155,000 people live in the StGeorge area and counting, but a big question to many wanting to move there: Is there enough water?{\/p}A new city project will determine that.{\/p}Scott Taylor, with the City of StGeorge, is planning the construction of a new water treatment plant will eventually utilize a number of unused water wells located west of StGeorge, allowing for more future real estate developments{\/p}\u201cYou're probably talking about 7,500 additional homes that would be developed based on this water source.\u201d Taylor said, \u201cThe purpose of that plant is to remove arsenic from the drinking waterWe have 11 groundwater wells in the gunlock areaAll of them contain some concentrations of arsenic.\u201d{\/p}Since 2001, only two of the 11 wells Taylor is talking about, which equals out to be about 8,500-acre-feet, have actually been safe to use, according to TaylorThe arsenic levels in the remaining nine wells are just too high and not usable for drinking.{\/p}\u201cRight now of that 8,500 acre-feet, we're using about 1,500...so there's basically 7,000-acre-feet that we have rights to we're currently not using,\u201d Taylor said.{\/p}This addition of water is not expected to raise water rates for the public, and according to Taylor users won\u2019t even know a difference in water quality or quantity.{\/p}\u201cWe anticipate in the next few months to move it to the design phase...the design will take nine months to a year we're hopeful that this time next year we'll be starting construction of that plant and it will probably take 16 -18 months to construct the plant,\u201d Taylor said.{\/p}2News asked realtors about what kind of questions they get when talking to people who are looking to move to Southern Utah and how this impacts the housing market for the future, to hear from them watch the news story above.{\/p}"}; sinclairDigital.pageData =

water source.\u201d Taylor said, \u201cThe purpose of that plant is to remove arsenic from the drinking waterWe have 11 groundwater wells in the gunlock areaAll of them contain some concentrations of arsenic.\u201d{\/p}Since 2001, only two of the 11 wells Taylor is talking about, which equals out to be about 8,500-acre-feet, have actually been safe to use, according to TaylorThe arsenic levels in the remaining nine wells are just too high and not usable for drinking.{\/p}\u201cRight now of that 8,500 acre-feet, we're using about 1,500...so there's basically 7,000-acre-feet that we have rights to we're currently not using,\u201d Taylor said.{\/p}This addition of water is not expected to raise water rates for the public, and according to Taylor users won\u2019t even know a difference in water quality or quantity.{\/p}\u201cWe anticipate in the next few months to move it to the design phase...the design will take nine months to a year we're hopeful that this time next year we'll be starting construction of that plant and it will probably take 16 -18 months to construct the plant,\u201d Taylor said.{\/p}2News asked realtors about what kind of questions they get when talking to
