Tuscumbia Membrane Water Plant Underway

The City of Tuscumbia broke ground last week on its new
$13.3 million water treatment plant
that will soften the local
spring water source that is high in alkalinity

Garver designed the new water treatment plant to include a state-of-the-art, series membrane process involving ultrafiltration followed by reverse osmosis.

The plant also will nearly double the capacity of the existing treatment facility at 4 million gallons per day. The plant is expected to take
18 months to complete once construction begins.

City officials are also excited that local contractors are providing design and construction services. Tuscumbia Utilities Director David Thorton told the Times Daily newspaper, "I can't think of a better team for this project. All these [Shoals] local contractors mean local labor."
