The Town of Beech Mountain broke ground on a new Water Treatment plant on Friday, Sept. 21.

Frizzell Construction has planned an 18-month timeline to completion. The state-of-the-art plant will enable the town to be responsive to changes in water conditions due to snow melt and heavy rains, and will meet Public Water Supply standards and EPA goals.

“We are pleased to be able to improve our services to our residents and visitors,” Mayor Rick Owen said. “The new plant will have a 40 year life expectancy and will be capable of processing 1.5 million gallons per day. The plant will replace the current treatment plant, which has been in operation since 1986.”

When the plant is ready to go online, it will be operated simultaneously with the current Water Plant for a period of time while local and state staff conduct quality assurance testing – in order to ensure no break in provision of water service to the community.
