Work Continues on the Expansion of Brandon's Water Treatment Plant.
On May 2, 2022, the Brandon City Council voted unanimously to move forward with a water treatment plant expansion project to meet the City's future growth and development needs. Additionally, the City Council approved the incorporation of reverse osmosis treatment technology into the project to address water hardness issues.
The reverse osmosis water treatment plan expansion project will double the capacity of the plant from 2,000 gallons per minute (gpm) to 4,000 gpm. It will also reduce the hardness of the City's water from approximately 24 grains of hardness down to 12 grains. The expansion is projected to meet the water needs of the City of Brandon until 2070.
