Where does our water come from, anyway?

The Beaver Borough Municipal Authority water treatment plant
is supplied from five ground water wells located along the northern
side of the Ohio river. The wells combine into a common header and
water flowing from the common header is injected with gaseous
chlorine before it enters an underground wet well. Gaseous chlorine
is automatically dosed. Three vertical turbine pumps are used to
distribute water to the Lions Lane storage tank and to the distribution
system. The Authority is working hard to identify water leakage in the
system and to make repairs to stop these leaks. Daily water production
has been greatly reduced by these efforts.
