Northwest Water Treatment Facility Groundbreaking

A special ceremonial groundbreaking event for the new Northwest Water Treatment Facility took place on Thursday, October 22, 2020. Shovels broke ground at 21st and Hoover, the future home of the new water treatment plant. Representatives from the City, Wichita Water Partners, the Kansas Department of Health and Environment, and the Environmental Protection Agency were on-site to speak about the project.

Evergy Substation - Supporting the New Water Treatment Plant

Construction began in March of 2022 and should conclude in March of 2023. Power lines connecting to the Water Treatment Plant will run underground and not affect Sedgwick County Park.
