More About The MP Water Treatment Plant
We are a plant capable of producing 40 MGD (million gallons per day). We are a 24 hour facility. That means that there is an operator here 24 hours a day/seven days per week. The original north plant and south plant were built in the late 1930s, and the plant underwent a renovation in the early 2000s. The renovation made the one plant that is here today.
