Water Treatment Facilities

These facilities treat, pump, and store water for domestic, commercial and fire fighting purposes, both inside and outside of the city limits. The primary goal of this activity is meet or exceed water quality standards to remain in full compliance with state and federal regulations, while providing adequate quantity and pressure for fire fighting. The design capacity of the treatment plant is 2 million gallons per day (MGD). Average production was 0.5 MGD in 2007, while peak demand was 0.7 MGD. The storage capacity of the reservoir is 1.25 million gallons. Preventive and corrective maintenance is routinely performed at these facilities for safe and cost effective operations. Funding is provided through water user fees.
