Hannibal gets $300K from insurer for sewer plant damage
HANNIBAL (AP) - The city of Hannibal has received nearly $300,000 in reimbursement from its insurer for damage the water-treatment plant sustained during last summer's flood.
The Hannibal Courier-Post reports the payment doesn't cover all the expenses related to the inundation of the plant.
Heath Hall, the city's operations director of the public works board, said Hannibal has spent $380,000 so far on the matter, and more work remains.
The plant was knocked out of service last June when a valve malfunctioned, causing water to flow back into the building from a 2.5-million-gallon storage tank.
