Marion Walker Pressure Filtration Plant

The Marion R. Walker Filtration Plant is a high-rate in-line pressure filtration plant. Features include horizontal pressure filters, continuous real-time monitoring and alarm systems, and the application of chlorine. The filter plant clarifies and reduces turbidity in the water. Silt and other natural materials that are removed from the water are placed in drying beds and later hauled off to the landfill.

The filtration plant also has a pilot plant attached. This is a small-scale treatment plant that simulates the full-scale treatment plant. It is used to evaluate variations in water quality testing and to offer different treatment options.
