Our village public works department provides a modern, dependable water system. Cridersville's Water Treatment Plant is a modern Class I Ground Water Treatment facility that is capable of producing 500,000 gallons of potable water daily. On an average day, current production is around 210,000 gallons per day. The original water plant went on line in the early 1950s and has been upgraded several times through the years with the most recent improvements taking place in 2004.
Water is pumped from 4 wells into a forced draft up flow aerator, which removes unwanted gases such as hydrogen sulfide and is the first step in removal of iron from the water. The water then enters a reaction basin where Chlorine is added to disinfect the water. Chlorine is also the second step in the removal of iron. Water is then pumped from the reaction basin through 6 iron pressure filters. This filter is the final step in the removal of iron that is present in the water.
What We Offer
The water then enters the distribution system, which has several miles of 4, 6, 8, 10, and 12 inch water mains. 2 water towers, holding a combined 575,000 gallons of water, maintain a constant pressure on the system. Water quality tests, from chlorine residuals to arsenic and volatile organic compounds, are conducted to insure that the water is safe for consumers.
