The goal of the WTP is to provide a safe and dependable supply of drinking water. Our water source is ground water from wells that draw from an intermediate aquifer; and the primary treatment of this water source is stabilization, disinfection and filtration. Disinfection is accomplished by the use of chloramines, a chlorine ammonia solution injected during the treatment process to kill any bacteria that may be present. The treated water is then filtered into the clear well and pumped into the distribution system and storage facilities.
