City of Fort Stockton RO Plant
Reverse Osmosis Plant
The City of Fort Stockton Water Treatment Plant provides the Citizens with safe and affordable drinking water. Our treatment plant is a reverse osmosis process and can process up to 7 million gallons of water per 24-hour period, with the capacity to store 5 million gallons in ground storage tanks.
The City of Fort Stockton RO plant has two locations with the objective of improving potable water quality for city residents and tourists. The plant uses a reverse osmosis filtration process and other processes within the plant to ionize or dissolve salt, magnesium ions, calcium, carbonate ions, and other impurities to generate highly purified drinking water. A computerized monitoring system constantly monitors the plants operation, along with TECQ class C licensed operators. The primary plant is located on the hill west of the city, with the secondary plant located at the city yard. Using both plants, multiple water wells, generator backups, and constant monitoring, the citizens and tourists of Fort Stockton are provided with consistent- quality water throughout the city.
The city’s RO plant is now supplied by a new 9.5-mile of 30-inch water main from the Belding well field. This line was installed in 2017 to ensure the citizens, tourists, and growth of Fort Stockton would have consistent water. The city’s infrastructure has undergone several updates of old lines, extensions of current lines, and a preventative maintenance plan on hydrants to prepare the city for new development throughout the city limits and ETJ of the city. Through the installation of new AMI meter reading technology, the city is able to record accurate meter readings as well as detect leaks and other anomalies in the system to better serve all customers.
The water plant staff is available 24 hours a day 7 days a week to answer any questions you may have about your drinking water. If you have a concern about the quality of your drinking water, please contact the plant.
