Water Treatment and Distribution
Every day MUB services touch the lives of every person in our community with the most basic element of life: water.
Every year the community grows and MUB must ensure that growth can be met.
While balancing these two priorities is certainly a challenge, it's a challenge that MUB successfully manages every moment of every day. This is because MUB staff not only understand the tremendous responsibility of their jobs but are always looking to improve.
MUB's commitment to excellence is also why in 2013 MUB put the finishing touches on a $40 million state-of-the-art upgrade to its water treatment plant. The upgrade provides area residents with the highest quality water possible while positioning MUB to not only meet increasingly stringent state and federal guidelines but the growing infrastructure needs of the area.
An important component of the overall upgrade is the installation of a membrane system for filtering water. This system significantly increases water quality by adding a protective barrier against various viruses and bacteria. Additionally, the upgrade includes updates to the water monitoring system and increased water treatment capacity.
Improvements such as these are critical to not only ensuring customer safety and area growth but is a primary reason Morgantown is consistently rated one of the best small cities in America. By keeping an eye on the future MUB is able to improve water quality while simultaneously contributing to area growth.
