The plant operates 24 hours per day, every day of the year. Its current capacity is 45 million gallons a day (MGD).
How do we treat water? ARJWS uses a conventional filtration system consisting of flocculation, sedimentation, and filtration processes.

Finished water is chlorinated to prevent bacterial growth, ensuring that customers receive the highest quality water.
