WTP and Intakes
The water intake and pump station facility at the Etowah River will pump water from there through the raw water pipeline to fill the Richland Creek Reservoir. The pumping operation will be controlled by a combination of reservoir level and the water level in the Etowah River, allowing higher pumping rates when there is more flow in the river. The Reservoir Intake and Pump Station will take water from the reservoir and pump it to the water treatment plant (WTP), where it is treated and pumped into the distribution system.
