Water Treatment Facilities

James E. Anderson RO Water Treatment PlantThe Water Treatment Facilities team is responsible for the treatment and distribution of safe, high quality drinking water, as well as the maintenance of all water facilities. Their functions include:

Water treatment operations

A total of 18 state-licensed treatment operators operate the James E. Anderson RO Treatment Plant and the Prineville/Ogden lime-softening and reverse-osmosis treatment plants around the clock (24/7). The treatment facilities are able to produce 22.5 million gallons of water per day (mgd) and 19.15 mgd respectively, and combined they can produce a total of 41.65 million gallons of drinking water each day. The operators rely on a high level of technology and computer controls to help them operate the facilities and to conform to numerous regulatory permitting and reporting requirements on a daily, and sometimes hourly, basis.

Water facilities maintenance

This group is responsible for maintenance and repairs at the three water treatment plants, four remote water storage and repump facilities, and at the city’s 49 raw production wells. They assure that the enormous pumps, blowers, industrial fans, chemical storage tanks, piping, and generators found at all water facilities are maintained in excellent working order. This unit is also responsible for assuring the most effective and efficient withdrawals are made from the city’s production wells. In addition to maintaining and operating the wells, they regularly collect raw water samples from each well in order to meet federal, state, and county regulations.
