Drinking Water update Will Double Plan’s Daily Capacity

July 21, 2006

John Jones Water Treatment Plant in Tracy, Calif., is undergoing a $50 million update that will double its daily capacity. The plant takes water from the ground and the Delta-Mendota Canal and turns it into drinking water for the city.

According to the Tri-Valley Herald, construction on the project is set to be complete next summer. The city is investing more than $210 million to improve Tracy’s capacity and water supply.

Among the new features that will be added to the plant is a new maintenance building to house the operations, and an ultraviolet filtration system designed to help make the water cleaner.
