Kempner WSC would like to provide you a quick update regarding the urgent plant maintenance that has been ongoing for the last week and a half:
- Zebra Mussels were removed from the raw water intake
- New membrane filters were installed
- Divers removed silt from around the raw water intakes
- Maintenance on the aeration system in the clearwell storage tank
Due to the above maintenance projects at the KWSC water treatment plant, Central Texas Water Supply Corporation has graciously provided 100% of all drinking water to KWSC and Lampasas. The maintenance process is almost complete, and we are expected to be up and running very soon.
Note: Zebra Mussels continue to cause problems for all surface water intakes. The divers cleaned all around our intake and will be back later this week to clean the inside of the pipe. This will be an annual maintenance project to keep water from being restricted to the water treatment plant.
Maintenance is an ongoing effort to make sure your water is safe to drink.
