Water Treatment Operations and Maintenance
Plant Operations, Maintenance of Water Wells and Water Towers
We rely on a staff of 16 personnel to operate the Water Treatment Plant 24 hours a day 7 days a week. Shifts are rotated among the staff to insure the plant always has a qualified Operator on site. Meeting State and Federal regulations as well as the expectations of the community are our primary responsibilities. In addition to operating the plant, the staff perform routine maintenance associated with keeping the plant and water wells operating. Our staff operates and maintains 31 water wells. In 2016 these resources provide approximately 3.05 billion gallons of water to the citizens of Norman. The Water Treatment Division added a new water tower in 2016. Currently, the plant staff maintain all city well sites, the water treatment plant and 6 water towers located throughout the City of Norman.
