Water Treatment Building

Water Treatment building

Water consumed at the field station is drawn from a well near Pleasant Creek, a perennial source that flows through the valley below. A solar-powered pump brings water to our on-site water treatment facility. To purify our water, CRFS uses a membrane filtration technique that uses several filters, including two nano-filters to ensure a quality product. The field station’s water treatment system is state licensed and operated by trained staff. Water is tested after treatment and meets or exceeds many operations found elsewhere in the state. A 10,000-gallon tank stores treated water for later use.
