Water Plant

Town of Warrenton Water Filtration Plant: Built in 1983 with a 2.0 MGD (million gallons per day) capacity. Filtering rate at 2.0 g/m/ft2. Granular Activated Carbon for taste and odor control. 

Upgraded in 2005 to 2.4 MGD capacity.

Upgraded in 2011 to 3.2 MGD capacity. Limited by the 2.3 MGD Safe Yield of the reservoirs, but enables the plant to function at a high level during emergencies and to keep staffing levels down with future growth. 

Upgraded in 2020 with a new Chemical Delivery Building. This new building operates with state-of-the-art electronics and flow-based chemical delivery pumps that are capable of delivering the optimal doses to help ensure and maintain the highest level of drinking water quality.
