Water Filtration Plant
Monday – Friday
The City of Moberly Water Filtration Plant produced 465,675,000 gallons of portable water in 2006; a decrease of 62,138,000 gallons from 2005. The raw water drawn from Sugar Creek Lake amounted to 505,423,000 gallons, a decrease of 64,056,000 gallons. The average daily usage was 1.384 million gallons, considerably less than the plant’s capacity of 5 million gallons per day. Bills for water used accounted for 338,143,651 gallons. Water used for City facilities, fire hydrant flushing, sewer cleaning, and water leaks accounted for an additional 54,853,356 gallons. The total water accounted for was 520,528,356 gallons. Our water loss for 2005 was 19%. This is a decrease from last year's 24% loss. This water cannot be accounted for because it is for service leaks between the meter and the main. Sugar Creek Lake.
Sugar Creek Lake
The Water Utility Department acquired the management of Sugar Creek Lake and the surrounding area in 2006. The Lake Ranger station has been opened. A contract has been drafted entering into agreement with the Department of Conservation for lake improvements. The boat dock at Sugar Creek Lake was replaced. Crews began surveying the majority of City property around the lake. A timber harvest was completed on City property around the lake.
The Water Treatment Plant converts disinfection from free chlorine to chloramines.
There will be some maintenance performed on the filter beds with chemical cleaning and to the raw water line. Bids were advertised in Summer of 2009 for these items.
