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.
