The Crooked Spring Treatment Plant went online in the Spring of 2007. Nine of the District’s wells, including the four gravel-packed wells at the Meadowbrook #3 Pumping Station are processed through this plant which utilizes aeration and greendsand filtration techniques to remove elevated levels of iron and manganese from these wells, administer pH controls and is a certified 4 Log treatment facility. This plant has emergency redundancy built into it by the inclusion of a back up UV Disinfection System. Crooked Spring also employs two unique operations. First, the backwash water from the filters are handled onsite by a Aquifer Re-introduction Lagoon System and second the plant receives roughly 56% of its power from its 0.5 Megawatt ground mounted Solar Array which came online in October 2010. Should you have any question concerning this plant's operation or would like to schedule a group tour, please call the District offices at 978-256-2381.
