MOSS POINT, MS (WLOX) -

Officials in Moss Point held a special meeting Friday to discuss the request for proposal for the city's reverse osmosis plant. 

The aldermen unanimously voted to continue with Utility Partners, the company who currently runs the plant.

Clear Water also submitted a bid, but it was more expensive. 

In 2015, Moss Point became the third city in the state to use the filtration purification process that pumps ground water through a series of powerful filters.

However, the $12 million plant has not been without issues. Two weeks after the operation commenced, residents reported a chlorine smell in the water. Just two months later, residents were faced with discolored water as the the project entered its final phase
