Once complete, all nine of PWSD’s well houses will have filtration installed in them.
PWSD’s Canyons and Ridgegate Well Houses were the first well facilities to have filtration installed. Both facilities have been outfitted with gravity filtration units with silica sand and anthracite media. The filters were fully integrated in October 2021 and each treats roughly 1 million gallons of water per day (MGD).
Our Rueter-Hess Well House is nearing completion and will have the capacity to treat and filter up to 8.5 million gallons of water per day. Our Reata Well House is scheduled to be next.
The remaining groundwater treatment facilities throughout the District will be prioritized for receiving filtration based on iron and manganese content and their supply to the distribution system.
