Jerry Plott Water Treatment Plant

Lake Tuscaloosa is a valuable natural resource, and thanks to the Jerry Plott Water Treatment Plant, 12 million gallons of raw water are processed every day for the surrounding community. Brasfield & Gorrie installed numerous state-of-the-art features, including the environmentally friendly Pall Microza microfiltration membrane system. The plant also includes storage tanks that hold 9 million gallons of water for immediate supply on demand and a 1,500 kilovolt ampere generator to prevent service interruptions during power failures.
