SEMINOLE - A new water source could soon be pouring into Seminole.

The city is mulling over a deal that would bring in water for the next hundred years.

The four year contract would be with Blaus Wasser.

Besides bringing in more water, it will solve another problem.

Right now, the city's water has more arsenic in it than is federally allowed.

City Manager Tommy Phillips says they either had the option of pumping in fresh water or building a treatment facility to treat their water.

Pumping it in will actually be cheaper.

The city council will vote on it on Monday.

If it's approved, the water would be available in a year.
