Rushton Water Treatment Plant Project (1490 W. 3100 S)
In December 2021, Granger Hunter Improvement District started a two-year project with Nelson Brothers Construction, to construct a treatment plant designed to improve the quality of water from our deep groundwater wells. The treatment plant was designed based on the results of a multi-year water quality study that started back in 2018. The treatment plant will consist of two filter vessels, capable of each treating 3000 gallons per minute. The filter vessels will improve the taste and aesthetic qualities of the water by treating the higher levels of iron and manganese in the groundwater. Funding for the project has been provided by the Department of Environmental Quality, Division of Drinking Water through the State Revolving Fund (SRF). It is anticipated that construction will be completed, and the filter vessels will be in operation by September 2023.
