City of Westminster Public Works & Utilities
The City of Westminster (with an estimated 2017 population of 113,000) has two water treatment facilities that produce drinking water that continually meets or exceeds all state and federal drinking water quality standards. The facilities are designed to remove dissolved and suspended solids, manganese, iron, offensive tastes and odors and pathogenic micro-organisms. The Semper Water Treatment Facility is capable of treating 44 million gallons per day using conventional filtration technology. The Northwest Water Treatment Facility is capable of treating up to 15 million gallons per day using state-of-the-art membrane micro-filtration. Average daily water consumption for the City of Westminster is currently 18 million gallons per day with a peak day of up to 44 million gallons per day.
Water 2025 is the City's long-term planning project to replace the aging Semper Water Treatment Facility and ensure high-quality drinking water for our community now and into the future. The goal of this effort is to identify the best site for the new facility by early 2019 using a systematic review process that is based on technical, operational and sustainability requirements, as well as significant community engagement.
