Omaha dedicates new Platte West water treatment plant
October 15, 2008
Omaha's Platte West Water Treatment Plant is being dedicated today
. The new plant, which uses Patterson horizontal split-case pumps
to create system pressure, increases Omaha's available water supply by almost 50%. Interestingly, the plant is upstream of Lincoln's water plant
, even though Omaha is about 60 miles to the west of the capital city. A video
documenting the steps that led to the plant's construction gives a fine overview of the process.
