Water Plant Operations
The Water Plant Operations Division provides the customers of Salisbury-Rowan Utilities with a sufficient supply of high quality potable water that meets all regulatory standards for purity, taste, appearance, and flow, at a reasonable cost to the consumer.
The water supply for Salisbury-Rowan Utilities is the Yadkin River. Our intake is located at the confluence of the Yadkin and South Yadkin Rivers, and a series of pumps, pipes, and reservoirs bring raw water to the plant near downtown Salisbury.
Our plant produces about 8.5 million gallons of water on average each day, and production can peak at nearly 12 million gallons per day (MGD) during the summer months. The water plant is permitted to treat up to 24 MGD.
