The Roswell Water Utility Department has started construction of its water intake at Big Creek for the city’s new water plant. Expect intermittent traffic delays from 9 a.m. through 3 p.m. along Oxbo Road due partial road closures during construction.
Construction of the water intake is expected to take approximately four months, with completion slated for November 2014.
The water intake at Big Creek is where water will be withdrawn to be treated at Roswell's new water treatment plant.
The city is replacing its 80-year-old water treatment plant with a new state-of-the-art facility.
After nearly 80 years of service, Roswell’s old water plant can no longer efficiently and cost-effectively produce water for the city’s customers.
Roswell’s Water Treatment plant services approximately 5,600 residences mostly within the historic district area. The city anticipates the new water treatment plant will be operational by the end of October 2015.
