The City of Lake Alfred’s Water Treatment is a 1 Million Gallon per Day (MGD) USBF treatment facility.
Water is pumped from underground wells, through transmission lines to the water treatment plant. Water is pumped from 4 wells located throughout the city.
The first step of the treatment process is called aeration. Aerators provide pretreatment of raw water. The aerators remove methane gas, hydrogen sulfide, and carbon dioxide while adding oxygen to promote the conversion of dissolved compounds into removable particles. After this process liquid chlorine and fluoride is added to provide Lake Alfred customers with quality drinking water.
