Water Quality

Managing Water Quality from Treatment to Tap

Untreated (raw) water is pumped from Carter Lake to the Carter Lake Filter Plants. Certified plant operators manage the treatment process, evaluating water quality throughout treatment. Once water is “finished” or treated, it is pumped to the Little Thompson Water District’s distribution system. Additional water quality tests are conducted at locations throughout the distribution system including water taps in customer homes and businesses.

Little Thompson Water District and Carter Lake Filter Plants strive to consistently meet or exceed state and federal water quality standards. Learn more about water quality testing in the 2016 Annual Water Quality Report.
