Water Treatment Plant
The Flint Water Treatment Plant employees are responsible for operating the water supply and purification system, including three drinking water reservoirs, four pump stations, four dams on the Flint River, and the water quality testing laboratory.
The Water Plant, which was originally constructed in 1952, underwent a major renovation in April 2014. The renovations allows the City to filter and purify higher volumes raw water of which is to be supplied as a potable water to the City residents and service areas. Flint currently purchases treated Lake Huron Water from Detroit as its primary water source.
The City officially joined the Karegnondi Water Authority (KWA, www.karegnondi.com) April 2013. The Water Authority will give Cities and Municipalities a voice in setting the rates for supplying their residents with clean water. Future plans are in the works to complete an intake pipeline from Lake Huron. The water quality of Lake Huron far surpasses any other water source available to the service area. The pipeline will carry and distribute untreated raw water to the KWA service areas, such as the Flint Water Treatment Plant. After a strict, filtration and purification process the water will be distributed to water customers. The project is expected to be completed by the end of 2016.
