Water Treatment Plants
Austin Water currently has three water treatment plants which draw water from the Colorado River and treat it to drinking water quality. After water is pumped from the river into the plants, it goes through several treatment steps including screening, disinfection, coagulation, flocculation, sedimentation, and filtration to ensure that citizens are provided with clean and safe water. The process takes about 6 to 10 hours to complete.
