City of Algonac – Water Filtration Plant

The Algonac Water Filtration Plant features a version of the Mariner’s Compass block. Traveling north on M-29 through Algonac, the  8’ by 8’ block is situated on the south wall of the building ,

The Algonac water filtration plant is one of 14 drinking water treatment plants along the Lake Huron to Lake Erie corridor. The water plant can produce 2.75 million gallons per day. That amount of water weighs more than 22 million pounds. The 130-foot-high Algonac water tower holds 500,000 gallons of water. When the tower is filled the water weighs 4.1 million pounds. The tower stores water but the main purpose is to provide water pressure. The Algonac water tower can provide pressure above 50 pounds per square inch to residents. The Algonac Water Department filters, treats and delivers an average of 1.5 million gallons of potable water daily to customers in the city of Algonac, Clay Township, and a portion of Cottrellville Township.
