Water Treatment Plant
The recent $40 million upgrade to MUB’s water treatment plant has made it a state-of-the-art facility. Every day the plant and its staff provide 10.5 million gallons of high quality water to customers. The upgrade also serves to meet increasing EPA water quality standards.
What’s more, with an immediate production capacity of up to 16 million gallons of water a day and expandability of up to 24 million gallons of water a day, MUB’s water treatment plant is designed to meet the growing infrastructure needs of the Morgantown area.
It’s important to note that MUB’s water treatment plant uses two independent sources of supply- the Monongahela River and Cobun Creek Reservoir. MUB also maintains more than 10 million gallons of treated water in storage in numerous tanks across its system. This means that in an emergency, MUB can utilize water from one source exclusively and inform the public of the situation.
