    professionals working around the clock to ensure things like consistent pressure high quality taste and reliability We operate five drinking water treatment plants with a combined nominal capacity of 23 0 million gallons per day MGD Crozet Water Treatment Plant North Rivanna Water Treatment Plant Observatory Water Treatment Plant Scottsville Water Treatment Plant South Rivanna Water Treatment Plant The effective maximum day operating capacity taking into account operating goals and system constraints is 18 7 MGD The safe yield of our water supply is currently estimated at 19 MGD Through our five treated water pump stations and 67 miles of water transmission pipes water flows to the City of Charlottesville and or the Albemarle County Service Authority s municipal water distribution systems Water Sources Raw Water from our reservoirs and rivers is pumped into the water treatment plants Coagulation Once it arrives at the plant the water is treated with coagulant the pH is adjusted and water is rapidly mixed together to help the particulates to stick together to form bigger particles called floc Flocculation After the rapid mixing process the water flows into flocculation basins where the flow of water is slowed and slowly mixed so the floc has time to attach to other floc particles and get bigger Sedimentation Next the water flows into sedimentation basins where the heavy floc particles sink to the bottom and are removed Filtration The water flows through large filters made of sand gravel and anthracite coal Filtration removes remaining microscopic particles and microorganisms By the end of 2017 all of our treatment plants will use Granular Activated Carbon GAC a gold standard when it comes to filtration to further increase our water quality Disinfection We use chlorine to disinfect the water and a residual level of chlorine is maintained throughout the distribution
