Touring the Wylie Water Treatment Plant with our Member City and Customer Organizations
On Friday, January 20, NTMWD Staff hosted the first quarterly tour of 2023 of the Wylie Water Treatment Plant for elected officials and staff of our Member Cities and Customers. Staff provided an overview of the District, which included information on history, service areas, water conservation, outreach initiatives, and ongoing major projects. The group then toured the Wylie Water Treatment Plant complex to see operations in action. Led by Zeke Campbell, Assistant Deputy, Water Treatment & Conveyance, attendees visited the various points along the journey of water including a stop at the raw water pump station, sedimentation basins, ozone facility, control room, and environmental services laboratory.
NTMWD operates one of the largest water treatment facilities in the country with four water treatment plants working together at the complex in Wylie. It is the largest combined facility in the world to use ozonation as its primary disinfectant. Ozone is the fastest working and most powerful disinfectant process available.
We enjoyed out visit with the City of Plano, Texas, City of Sachse, City of Princeton Tx,and the City of Parker as well as Caddo Basin Special Utility District, and Milligan Water Supply Corporation.
