Clinton's Water Treatment Plant

Efficient planning helped meet long-term water supply needs

The Wooten Company prepared plans and specifications, and administered the construction of a new 1.5 mgd water treatment facility. The project included four new raw water well sites, raw water lines, aeration/detention basin, pressure filters, chemical feed system, clear well, high service pumps, backwash system and site work.   The new iron-removal water plant included a SCADA system to control the water supply wells, water plant and elevated tanks.

The project was designed to work in conjunction with five deep wells in Western Clinton that did not require treatment for supplemental water supply for the city.   The wells in Well Field East take advantage of a plentiful shallow-well aquifer source and a deep well source to provide for an efficient water supply.

The Wooten Company later also completed improvements to the plant. The water treatment plant improvements project includes the expansion of the existing 1.5 mgd water treatment facility to 3 mgd capacity. The project involves construction of four new shallow and two new deep wells at four well sites in the Well Field East area, raw and finished water lines, aeration/detention basin, pressure filters, SCADA system improvements and associated site/electrical work. Upon completion, the city will effectively utilize 12 wells in the Well Field East area in conjunction with five deep wells located in the western part of the city to supplement the city’s long-term water supply needs.
