WNC water plants honored for extra-clean water

Written by 

The N.C. Division of Water Resources has honored 49 water treatment plants statewide for surpassing federal and state drinking water standards, and five WNC plants made the list.

Those plants honored include: Waynesville’s Allens Creek plant, Maggie Valley Sanitary District, Western Carolina University, Andrews and Robbinsville’s Rock Creek plant.

Plants on the list had exceedingly low measures of cloudiness caused by particulates, which can interfere with disinfection and provide a medium for microbial growth. While all drinking water systems must meet strict state and federal standards, these systems met performance goals that are significantly more stringent. During 2016, the plants served nearly three million North Carolina residents.
