Tennessee American Water Enhances Employee and Public Safety Standards at Treatment Plant

Daphne Kirksey

Tennessee American Water has completed and begun operating a new disinfection building, which provides an important step in cleaning drinking water to maintain high quality. Led by project manager and engineer Tyler Cross, the $5.8 million building project at the Chattanooga water treatment plant replaces a different disinfection system and enhances public and employee safety standards at the treatment plant. 

“At the end of every tap is a family counting on us to provide safe, clean water,” says Tennessee American Water President Darlene Williams. “Tennessee American Water has been providing quality water for over 132 years. This investment in the water treatment plant is a shield for our customers and water-borne disease.”

In 2018, Tennessee American Water removed a 1940-era filter building to make way for the safer and more reliable disinfection building. This is another example over the last five years of the $92 million infrastructure improvements Tennessee American Water has made to maintain high water quality standards and assure safety is met for customers, employees, the drinking water system and the environment.
