Finished Water Storage and High Service Pumping

The membrane product water is pumped to a 1.5 million gallon ground storage tank. From the ground storage tank, the finished potable water is pumped into the distribution system under automatic distribution system pressure control. The high service pumps are used to deliver water to the customers and are designed to maintain pressure throughout the distribution system.
