CLANDONALD WATER UTILITY

 

Clandonald Water Plant Information


The Water Treatment Plant underwent a significant upgrade in 2005 which included additional water storage and VFD (variable frequency drive) distribution pumps. The facility LSD is SW-17-53-5-4W4. The plant provides drinking water to approximately 150 residents and businesses.
 
Groundwater sources are provided from two wells located near the Treatment Plant.
The groundwater is pre-chlorinated and then flows through two filters containing greensand media and anthracite coal media. This media is effective for iron and manganese removal together with other dissolved metals, odour removal and improves taste. The filters are continuously recharged with potassium permanganate which renews the oxidation properties of the media.
 
Treated water is produced at 15 US gallons per minute. 
Water is stored in an underground concrete reservoir of 20,415 US gallons (17,000 imperial gallons) and one 20,000 US gallon fiberglass storage tank.
 
The SCADA system was implemented early 2010. The system continuously monitors the Total Chlorine (disinfection mg/l), distribution pressure and pumps status, reservoir level, well pump status and building temperature. The system will send alerts and also allows access to current status and historical trends by remote desktop.
