Prior to entering the clearwells, chlorine is added to maintain a residual disinfectant throughout the distribution system. The filtered water is stored in two clearwells with a total capacity of 5.4 million gallons. Finished water pumps draw water from a wetwell to service CLCJAWA communities.
The member communities are linked by 32 miles of transmission pipe with sizes ranging from 16 to 48-inches in diameter. At approximately the midpoint of the system, three 3.2 million gallon standpipes provide additional system storage, and a booster pump station maintains adequate pressure for the most distant member communities.
In addition, a 200-foot tall, 1.5 million gallon elevated storage tank is located downstream of the booster pump station to provide more storage, maintain pressure, and improve the system's reliability.
The area served with CLCJAWA water may be viewed, down to the individual lot level, using the Lake County GIS Mapping site located here. Once on the site click on the "Government" applications at the top of the page, then click on "Topics" on the command line, then pick "Joint Action Water Agency" on the left side.
