Highpoint System Has New Water Treatment Plant

The Highpoint water system has a new Class B water treatment plant to better serve its customers. According to Dustin Pearson of Pearson Services, the operator of the system,  the plant treats up to 350 gallons of water per minute.

Pearson indicates that the new plant is more energy efficient by reducing pumping cycles from 4 to 2 times for delivery to the customer and that the system can be controlled and monitored offsite on a 24 hour, seven day a week basis by computer or smart phone.

While the treatment plant improves efficiency and water quality, Pearson reminds customers that water issues are always a possibility due to line breaks, hydrant testing and conditions of existing lines.
