City of Shelby
Water Treatment Plant
115 North Gamble Street
Shelby’s new Water Treatment Plant took over operation from the old plant in September 2006. Raw water enters the plant from one of the two reservoirs operated by the city. These reservoirs provide 588 million gallons of water for use by the community. The new plant is designed to treat up to 4 million gallons a day; it currently treats an average of 1.2 million gallons a day.
The operators monitor operation of the plant with greatly updated and automated equipment in order to be sure that the plant meets all EPA regulations.
Superintendent Ron Shepherd, four operators, the meter reader and serviceman all can be reached at 419-342-2171 to answer any customer questions.
Reservoir #3 has a 1.2 mile walking path surrounding it.
Reservoir #2 has a .9 mile walking path.
