The Water Treatment Plant is located at 68474 S 320 Rd in Wagoner, OK. The drinking water for the City of Wagoner is treated at this facility through a multi-level treatment process.
First, the facility pumps raw lake water into clarifiers. Coagulants are added during this part of the process, which combine with the dirt in the water and aid in collection and removal of the particles by making them bigger. Next, the water goes to the filter process, which removes the smaller particles. The plant then adds chlorine as a disinfectant before the water is stored in a clearwell and distributed into town.
The Water Treatment Plant currently has four employees who work two shifts. They perform general maintenance and cleaning throughout the facility, which includes changing oil in the pumps, changing air and oil filters, calibrating meters, and general cleaning, sweeping, washing and lawn care throughout the summer. City employees at the Water Treatment Plant are required to have a minimum of four hours of training per year to maintain their water license.
