Increasing Water Capacity by 6 Million Gallons to Serve a Growing Community

Challenge

In order to meet the demands of the growing population, and maintain the standard of high quality drinking water, the City needed to expand and renovate its water treatment facility.

Solution

The project increased the capacity of the facility from 18 million gallons per day to 24 million gallons per day to meet increasing demand. A vehicle wash bay was also constructed to help the City protect its investment in its maintenance vehicles.
