Jefferson Water Treatment Plant

Project Name: Jefferson Water Treatment Plant
Owner: City of Jefferson
Location: Jefferson, Oregon

Project Description: Westech is currently assisting the City with the design of a new 2.0 mgd water treatment plant to treat surface water from the Santiam River.  The City’s existing water treatment plant is operating near its design capacity and is in need of major upgrades. As part of the planning for the project Westech worked with the City to evaluate different treatment technologies.  It was ultimately decided that a new membrane filtration plant would be the best long-term choice for the City.   One of the major reasons for selecting membrane filtration was the ability of the technology to meet anticipated future regulatory changes in surface water treatment rules.  The project includes a new raw water pump station, a raw water storage tank, a membrane water filtration system, onsite chlorine generation system, chlorine contact chamber, and a finish water pump station.  During the 2014 calendar year Westech will complete design work for the project and assist the City with the acquisition of a financing package as well as water rate adjustments needed to fund the project.  The project is currently scheduled for construction in 2016.
