The $11 million project involved installing 7,000 linear feet of pipeline, a two-million-gallon concrete reservoir, a booster pump station, consisting of five vertical turbine pumps, water treatment facilities, a new arsenic treatment system and a well development. To increase the station's water distribution pressure, crews constructed each zone with three 100-horsepower and two 75-horsepower vertical turbine pumps with variable frequency drives, which extend down 37 feet into a header, supplied with water from the bottom of the reservoir.
