Moving out the Finished Product
Moving the Finished Product
On average, we pump 18 million gallons per day to our customers
Finished water pumps draw water from the clearwell to send out to all the CLCJAWA communities. Six pumps move the treated drinking water out into our water pipeline and on to the towns and villages that deliver water to our customers.
Over 55 miles of pipe move the water to our member communities
Pipe sizes range from 12 to 48-inches in diameter, utilizing multiple pipe materials. Pre-stressed concrete cylinder pipe makes up approximately 28.5 miles of the transmission system, with ductile iron approximately 20.3 miles, and approximately 2 miles of both fusible and standard PVC to make up the rest.

24 delivery structures aid in delivering the water to over 285,000 people
Each community is allocated an underground delivery structure where the water is metered before crossing over to the town's pipeline. CLCJAWA is responsible for all pipeline and appurtenances prior to the delivery structures, while each community takes responsibility of the water after passing through the delivery structures.
Booster Pump Station
Adds 9 million gallons of storage and boosts pressure to distant towns
At approximately the midpoint of the system, three 3.2 million gallon steel standpipes provide additional system storage. A Booster Pumping Station (BPS), consisting of 3 vertical turbine pumps, maintains adequate pressure for the most distant member communities.
A 200-foot tall, 1.5 million gallon elevated storage tank is located downstream of the BPS to provide more storage, maintain pressure, and improve the system's reliability.
