The John M. McGinnis Water Treatment Facility was built in 1963. Originally constructed as a 1.5 million gallons per day plant, in 1974 it was expanded to treat up to 3.2 million gallons per day. The City maintains two elevated storage tanks with a combined capacity of 2 million gallons for finished water storage and maintains a raw water reservoir with a storage capacity of 10 million gallons. The plant provides safe drinking water to all residents of the City as well as some areas outside the corporate limits. Annual, quarterly, monthly, daily, and hourly tests are run on the water to assure the best drinking water for our citizens. The plant is operated 365 days per year and the water produced at the plant has won awards from the North Carolina Rural Water Association for taste.
