Description

As portions of Blount County Water Authority’s western service area increased in¬†desirability for residential and commercial development, upgrades to the delivery system were necessary to keep up with recent and projected growth. BCWA partnered with CDG to construct a new storage tank and pumping station and upgrade the water treatment plant. The new facility conveys water approximately 25 miles, serves more than 15,000 people and can provide up to 3 million gallons of water per day. BCWA can perform much of its pumping during times when off-peak power rates are available, resulting in lower annual electricity costs. The facility is equipped with a back-up power generator for continued pumping during extended power outages. If demand continues to increase, the overall delivery capacity can be expanded to 5 million gallons per day.
