Triple Peak SWTP: Backwash Lagoons and Calgon Carbon Pressure Filter Vessels
Backwash lagoons allow CLWSC to operate the Triple Peak Surface Water Treatment Plant as a zero discharge plant. Water is captured in these lagoons and routed back through the plant for filtration.
In 2016, CLWSC introduced four granular activated carbon filters at our Triple Peak Surface Water Treatment Plant as seen in the photo. These filters added an additional level of treatment and have significantly improved treated water quality.
