LACEY UTILITY TO INITIATE WATER TREATMENT AT SOUTHEAST AREA WELL
LACEY, WA, November 30, 2012: The City of Lacey Water Utility will begin treatment of water from a well located in the Capital City Golf Club neighborhood during the first week of December. The new treatment process will improve quality from the utility’s Well Number 4, which serves an area south of Yelm Highway including Capital City Golf Club, Beckenridge, Rainier Park, Horizon Pointe, and the Links at Indian Summer, as well as Lacey Corporate Center to the north.
The $2.5 million dollar treatment facility is designed to raise the pH of water from the well to a level more consistent with what is found in other parts the city’s water system. Currently, the well’s pH averages about 6.4. The improved pH will be 7.5 to 8.0. A pH below 6.6 may be corrosive to some plumbing and fixtures.
Customers in the affected areas with home or commercial water treatment systems, or that use chemically-treated water for uses such as hot tubs and fish tanks, may need to adjust their treatment levels in response to the higher pH.
