Water Treatment Plant

 

The Wolfeboro Water Treatment Plant consists of (2) full-time operators. The plant operates (365) days per year at an average daily flow rate of approximately 550,000 gallons per day. The plant is located on Northline Road and receives its untreated source water from Upper Beech Pond. The 136 acre pond has a capacity of 770 million gallons with a useable storage of approximately 260 million gallons due to the intake configuration. The pond is spring fed with exceptional high quality. Water enters the plant by gravity and chemicals are introduced to bring natural contaminants to a filterable state. Flow then enters (2) Microfloc filtration units for final polishing, then into a 100,000 gallon disinfecting tank to bring bacteria population to a safe level and inactivate viruses. Once the disinfecting process is complete flow enters a 1,000,000 gallon storage tank and is ready for consumption. Water quality consistently meets and exceeds State and Federal standards and the plant is very energy efficient due to the hydraulics allowing gravity feed in and out with no pumping costs.  The State of New Hampshire mandates the plant to have at least one certified operator and encourages all operators to be certified.  Our Primary Operator is Janine Gillum, Water & Sewer Superintendent, WTP Grade III, Distribution Grade II.
