The lime slaker equipment at Courtney Bend Water Plant provides slaked lime slurry by converting calcium oxide or quicklime into calcium hydroxide, which is an essential requirement of the water treatment process. This request is for approval to replace and install a new lime slaker unit 2, lime slaker unit 3, and lime slaker unit 3 pump. This equipment will replace existing equipment that has reached the end of its functional life, having been in service in excess of 15 years. Replacement of this equipment improves the reliability and sustainability of the Water Department’s operation of the Courtney Bend Water Plant.
