The Longview City Council will hold a workshop Thursday to discuss reverse osmosis, a water treatment technique that could reduce silica in the city’s water supply.
The council previously considered the option during a joint workshop with Beacon Hill Water and Sewer District commissioners in July 2017. The council chose not to move forward with reverse osmosis at that time because its estimated $12.83 monthly increase for ratepayers was determined to be too costly.

Silica is a naturally occurring mineral that does not pose a health risk. However, the white residue it leaves on dishes and appliances has frustrated Longview residents since the city moved its water supply from the Cowlitz River to the Mint Farm Industrial Park in 2013.
The workshop will begin at 6 p.m. Thursday in Longview City Hall.
