DOWNEY, Calif., June 19, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Park Water Company (Park) announced today that it is in the final phase of construction of a water treatment facility located at a Compton well. This new treatment facility will allow Park to deliver less expensive groundwater and reduce reliance on more expensive imported water, some of which is brought to customer taps from sources that are hundreds of miles away.
Park provided the initial investment of over $2.5 million dollars for a state-of-the-art water quality treatment facility, which meets very strict water quality standards. Park was successful in obtaining a grant from the State of California, which will refund the company for its investment, saving customers millions of dollars.
"Everyone deserves clean drinking water," said General Manager Jeanne-Marie Bruno. "This project helps ensure that customers receive high quality water service while reducing the use of expensive imported water."
Park expects to pump, on average, 900 acre feet of water per year from this well which will reduce water imported from the Colorado River and the California State Water Project.
One acre foot of water is approximately 326,000 gallons, about enough to supply two single-family households of four for an entire year. Park anticipates the project to be complete and operational in July 2012.
