Plant/Process Description:
A state-of-the-art plant located north of the City of Valdosta supplies drinking water for local residents, businesses, and industries. The plant was completed in 2007 and uses ozone as the primary treatment process and was the first municipal plant in Georgia to use this technology. It has many innovative features, including computer monitoring and control of treatment processes and a Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA) system to monitor the distribution system pressure and water levels in all elevated tanks in the system.

Water for the plant is taken from eight (8) deep wells on City property surrounding the plant. The system has an annual average daily flow capacity of 11 million gallons per day (MGD) and a maximum daily flow of 15 MGD. The water transmission and distribution system has over 300 miles of mains, with pipe sizes up to 30 inches in diameter.

The City of Valdosta obtains its water supply from eight (8) wells that are drilled into an underground layer of porous, water bearing limestone known as the Upper Floridan Aquifer.

This limestone layer lies under most of South Georgia and all of Florida. Generally, the aquifer is able to provide a prolific supply of good clean water. In Valdosta, the top of the aquifer lies approximately 200 feet below ground surface and the City's wells are drilled an additional 200 feet into the limestone.

The Floridan Aquifer in the area of Valdosta and Lowndes County is known as a karst aquifer. This is an aquifer that has cracks, underground solution channels, and caverns. These cracks can provide a route to allow contaminants to enter the aquifer, move about in the aquifer and alter the water supply and can cause special challenges for the City's water system.

The City of Valdosta Water Treatment Plant uses the latest available technology to provide safe and good tasting water for its customers. Expansions of the facility to 22.5 million gallons per day (MGD) and upgrading of all equipment was completed in 2007. The treatment process includes:

Air stripping towers to physically remove hydrogen sulfide;
Ozone treatment to oxidize organics and sulfides and to provide primary disinfection;
Chemical addition to stabilize the pH of the treated water;
Phosphate addition to provide corrosion control;
Sodium hypochlorite addition to provide final disinfection and provide a disinfection residual until the water is used by the customer;
Treated water is stored on-site and pumped to the customer as needed.
