Quenching Water Demand with New Groundwater Well and Treatment Plant

Challenge

The City of Stevens Point was growing. It needed additional drinking water supplies to meet increasing demand from residential, commercial and University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point users.

Solution

The SEH team designed a new groundwater supply well a new water treatment plant to meet the needs of the growing community. It was the largest capacity municipal groundwater supply project in Wisconsin. Its 10,000-gallons-per-minute supply capacity should serve the City with high-quality water for decades to come, without negative impacts on nearby property owners’ wells or the environment.
