Design and construct a new 30 MGD water treatment plant in the northwestern area of the county.
The current Water Treatment Plant is a 60 MGD treatment facility located on Transmitter Road. Bay County’s Water Treatment Plant is the sole producer of all treated drinking water for Panama City Beach, Panama City, Springfield, Callaway, Parker, portions of Lynn Haven, Tyndall Air Force Base, Mexico Beach, and unincorporated Bay County. In order to deliver treated water to the north and western areas of the county, large infrastructure must cross several critical water bodies. A second water treatment plant would provide a redundant treated water source for the entire county should the current water treatment plant be compromised and would more efficiently and effectively service the north and western areas of the county where significant growth and development is planned.
