Water Treatment Plant

 The Water Treatment Plant, located approximately one-half mile south of 4th Street (K-126) on Free King Highway, provides clean, safe drinking water to approximately 8600 customers within the service area. The existing Plant was constructed in 1972 and was designed for a peak hydraulic capacity of 5.0 million gallons per day (MGD), but produces on average 2.6 MGD. The source water for the City of Pittsburg is groundwater of the Ozark Plateaus Aquifer, which extends under parts of Kansas, Missouri and Oklahoma. The City currently has four wells that pump groundwater to the Water Treatment Plant. These wells were developed in the Rubidoux formation of the Ozark Aquifer with a capacity of 11 MGD. Currently, the City has water rights to divert 4.27 MGD/average. The City has three elevated water towers, two with 750,000 gallon capacity and another 250,000 gallon tower, as well as an underground storage reservoir that holds 1.5 million gallons.
