The South County Regional Water Treatment Plant has a constructed capacity to produce 32 million gallons of drinking water per day. The facility was originally constructed in 1984 with a capacity of 4 Million Gallons per Day (MGD) of lime softening water treatment process. In 1988, the facility was expanded by 8 MGD, bringing the total constructed capacity of the lime softening water treatment process to 12 MGD.
In 2004, a facility expansion was completed that added 8 MGD of reverse osmosis water treatment process in a separate process building on the same site. In 2007, an additional 4 MGD of reverse osmosis water treatment capacity was added, and in 2009, the last 8 MGD of reverse osmosis water treatment capacity was completed, bringing the reverse osmosis water treatment capacity to a total of 20 MGD.
