Water Treatment

Catheys Creek Water Treatment Facility

The City of Brevard Water Treatment was constructed in 1980 and has the capacity to treat up to 2.6 million gallons of water each day. At present the water plant operates between 12 and 14 hours per day and treats one million gallons of water.

Located west of the city on Catheys Creek, our source water is a protected watershed within and surrounded by the Pisgah National Forest. The Water Treatment Facility is staffed by 4 full-time operators under the supervision of the Operator in Responsible Charge.

Our operators have over 100 years of combined experience and are certified by the State of North Carolina. This level of experience coupled with a program of continuing education helps assure our customers of a safe and adequate supply of drinking water.
