Addressing Capacity, Taste and Odor.
Phase One has been completed with the completion of construction on the 42" water distribution line and upgrades at our Mount Carmel Water Treatment Plant. This will improve our treatment capacity at that plant from 45 million gallons to 66 million gallons per day. Similar improvements will take place at our Riverside Plant and when the entire project is completed the City of Waco will be able to treat a maximum of 130 million gallons of water per day.
In Phase Two, the City of Waco is also making the transition to a new treatment process called "dissolved air flotation." This will address issues with the taste and odor problems caused by by-products of algae in the North Bosque River Watershed.
