City of Fort Stockton RO Plant


The City of Fort Stockton operates a Reverse Osmosis (RO) department as part of its water treatment and purification infrastructure. Reverse osmosis is a water purification process that uses a partially permeable membrane to remove ions, molecules, and larger particles from drinking water. This technology is commonly used in municipal water treatment plants to provide clean and safe drinking water to residents.

In the context of the City of Fort Stockton, the RO department plays a crucial role in ensuring that the water supplied to residents meets regulatory standards for safety and quality. The reverse osmosis process helps remove contaminants such as bacteria, viruses, dissolved solids, and other impurities from the raw water source before it is distributed for consumption. By utilizing reverse osmosis technology, the city can provide its residents with clean and potable water that meets or exceeds state and federal drinking water regulations.

Water System

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.
