The Water Treatment Plant (WTP) currently has the capacity to treat 22.5 million gallons per day (mgd) and treats an average of 12 mgd. While we have adequate capacity, any water system is potentially vulnerable to events such as drought, major water main breaks, etc.. It is essential to be prepared for emergencies that can place unusually high demands on the system. Greenville Utilities has a Water Emergency Management Plan in place that designates three stages of emergencies. Click here for more details.
If any of the emergency stages are declared, we will notify customers immediately through the local media (TV, newspaper, radio), Greenville TV (GTV) and GUC’s weather channel (cable 35).
If you have questions about the Emergency Management Plan, please call us at 252-329-2160.
