description

The Jonathan W. Rogers Water Treatment Plant treats Rio Grande water for distribution to El Paso Water Utilities’ wholesale and retail customers. This state of the art water plant began operating in 1993 with the capacity to treat 40 million gallons of water per day (MGD), and September 2002 marked the completion of a 20 MGD expansion. In addition, the installation of 32,000 feet of water transmission pipelines increased the amount of potable water available to El Paso residents and those living in a number of colonias. The increased capacity is needed to serve additional customers in the City’s eastside and expanding lower valley area.

The Utility’s total surface water supply capability is a 100 MGD, which will represent more than 50 percent of the total annual demand. This plant along with the Robertson/Umbenhauer Water Treatment Plant operate during the seven-month irrigation season when Rio Grande Project water is available. The Utilities' water system each year consistently receives a Superior Water System ranking by the Texas Commission On Environmental Quality.
