Water System Process:
Raw water is pumped from Well #4 to a mechanical aerator to remove hydrogen sulfide, and is collected in a 4,000 gallon basin. Two high service pumps alternate bringing the raw water into a horizontal pressure tank (Tonka System) for radium removal. Pre-chlorination and HMO (Hydrous Manganese Oxide) processing is completed before the raw water enters the pressure tank. Finished water is then post-chlorinated and pumped into a 186’, 200,000 gallon spheroid elevated water tank for distribution.

After storage or on demand from the treatment building, pressure is regulated at 54psi by pressure reducing valves prior to distribution to the households. Potable water is furnished to the Godley Park District Community Center at tower elevation pressure (at 70psi) as required for their fire sprinkler system.
