MAYVILLE, N.D. -- The Traill Rural Water District wants to purchase the Mayville water treatment plant or take control of the facility.

The water district board approved to make the offer to the city of Mayville after paying 50 percent more for water from the plant compared to water the district receives from a facility in Hillsboro, according to a report in the Traill County Tribune. Board members said in the report there likely would be opposition to selling the Mayville plant to the water district, but they said they should start somewhere in order to get better prices for customers.
