Carver Water Treatment Facility Expansion Project Overview
The City of Carver has grown and changed since it installed its first water treatment facility in 2004. With the population tripling since 2000, the city’s current water treatment facility is reaching maximum capacity.
The current system can process about 1.2 million gallons per day. Projections show that the demand for City water will increase to over 1.3 million gallons per day within just a few years and will over double current demand by 2040.
In response to this, the City of Carver is planning to expand the current water treatment facility to meet these demands. This expansion is expected to add 1.5 million gallons of capacity per day to over double City water supply capabilities.
For several years, the City has planned for the future need to expand the Water Treatment Plant. The estimated project cost of 12 million dollars has been in the City’s Long-Term Financial Plan for many years to complete the expansion project. As a result, the costs associated with the expansion project have already been calculated into the City’s existing rate plan. There will be no special charges or one-time fees needed from residents in order to finance and complete the expansion project.
Construction Update – August 2022
Over the last year and a half, the City of Carver’s Water Treatment Facility has undergone a major expansion project which over doubles the facility’s water treatment capacity. As of July 2022, this expansion is substantially complete, and the facility is fully operational. Minor site cleanup and punchlist work will continue into fall 2022.
As a result of the work coming to an end, Tower Lane has been reopened. Please continue to be cautious while driving through the area as crews will periodically be on site finishing remaining work this fall.
Thank you to the community for your patience and cooperation during this very important water system expansion project for the City of Carver.
Construction began on the expansion project in January 2021 and took place over the course of a year and a half. Click on the Construction Updates tab for previous project updates and photos throughout construction.
