What are the benefits of the Northwest Water Treatment Facility?

The facility will be sized to meet peak hourly demand with the ability to treat up to 120 million gallons of water each day. To put that into context, our peak daily demand in the most recent years has been less than 85 million gallons a day with the average demand at approximately 50 million gallons a day.

It would be built with fully redundant treatment systems to ensure that no generation, now or in the future, will experience a water outage due to operational issues.
