The mission of the Troy Water Treatment Plant (WTP) is to
provide an adequate supply of drinking water, complying with all Federal and State of Ohio
health and aesthetic standards. After treatment, water is maintained at a sufficient
pressure for residential, commercial, industrial, and firefighting purposes. The
City of Troy provides water to parts of Miami County's and Troy's 25,058 (2010
US Census) residents. The WTP is
staffed 24 hr./day, 365 days/year.
The City of Troy obtains its public drinking water supplies
from buried valley sand and gravel aquifers associated with the Great Miami River. The
City currently utilizes ten (10) production wells to draw water from the aquifer for
treatment at the water plant. These wells are located at the Miami Shores Golf Course and
the Troy Municipal Park adjacent to the Great Miami River. The raw well water is pumped to
the Water Treatment Plant where it is softened, clarified, disinfected, and filtered prior
to being pumped to our water customers. We currently pump an average of 4.2 million gallons of
water each day to the system with final hardness of approximately 120-130 mg/L.
In 1999, plant treatment expansion projects were completed to allow future
treatment capacity up to 16 million gallons per day. We now have emergency power
to the plant and both well fields. Planned improvements for 2013 include water
tower maintenance, the recoating of two 750,000-gallon basins, and updating of
the City's Water Master Plan.
