Webster water Treatment Plant
Monroe County, NY, USA
Category: Water Treatment & Storage
Located in western New York State, the Webster Water Treatment Plant is the central element of a new water supply system that provides critical capacity to residents of Monroe County. Drawing up to 50 million gallons a day through a mile-long tunnel under Lake Ontario, the water is pumped three miles further to the Webster Water Treatment Plant to be purified in a multi-step process prior to distribution to residents across the county.
The concrete in the new water treatment plant, including the clear well, contact tanks and pipe tunnels, were all treated with an application of PENETRON crystalline material. PENETRON ADMIX was used to treat the concrete utilized in the deep tunnel shaft of the raw water intake areas and the pump station, along with PENETRON and PENECRETE MORTAR to optimize concrete durability and to protect the critical parts of the intake shaft.
