So far, Mosser construction crews are winning the race against the winter weather to have Rockford's new water treatment plant under roof. The village received a $1 million grant to fund the new facility as well as the installation of water meters throughout the village. The rest of the project will be paid for with a $1.5 million zero percent loan for 20 years.
