Canyon Lake Shores SWTP: One of three, 2 million gallon per day Tonka carbon filters

Canyon Lake Shores SWTP: One of three, 2 Million Gallon Per Day, Tonka Granular Activated Carbon Filters

The majority of the water provided to our Canyon Lake Shores System is produced at our Canyon Lake Shores Surface Water Treatment Plant. Raw water is pumped from Canyon Lake and is moved through our two ClariCone® clarifiers to remove solids and organic matter.

The settled water passes through the three granular activated carbon (GAC) filters shown in the photo, each with the capacity of 2 million gallons of water a day. As the water leaves the filters, it is injected with a chlorine solution of mixed oxidants for final disinfection and is allowed contact time in the storage tank prior to being pumped to the distribution system.
