On 11/2, our service rep from Kurita Tonka Water will be performing our annual water treatment plant inspection. Tonka Water built the water treatment equipment for our treatment plant.
Below are the objectives of the visit:
- Inspect the filter media for each filter. We will take measurements to study any media change from the 2022 visit. The media will also be visually inspected to ensure there are no breakthrough concerns.
- Inspect the filter backwashing processing. This is to ensure the filters are being properly cleaned and that the backwashing program is operating properly.
- Exercise the high-service pumps at high flow rates and evaluate the performance of the variable frequency drive for the pumps.
- Discuss opportunities to enhance lightning protection.
The above operations may cause a disruption to the water in the distribution system. This may especially be the case when we test high flow rates. Plan for your water to be discolored on 11/2.
Treat the day as if we are flushing the hydrants. Avoid washing white clothes on 11/2. Flush your faucets prior to using the water. It will also be beneficial to put your water softeners on bypass.
The service visit should be completed by 4:00 p.m. Contact me with any questions.
