The Kimzey Regional Water District was developed using Lake DeGray (south of Hot Springs) to supply water to some 1,200 rural water users. MWY designed the raw water intake and transmission facilities, as well as the water treatment plant and high service pumping facilities.
The initial hydraulic capacity of the intake and 18-inch diameter raw water pipeline is 6- MGD. The water treatment plant was initially constructed as a 2-MGD facility with the capability to easily expand to 6-MGD.
Process elements included a solids contact clarifier, an operations- chemical feed building, a four-cell, self-backwashing filter, cleanwell storage, and high service pumps.
