The City of Gladstone began supplying water to its citizens in 1887 with the construction of a wooden intake line, steam pump house and several thousand feet of cast iron distribution pipe. The existing filtration plant was built in 1970 and has been treating Little Bay de Noc water ever since.
The Gladstone Water Treatment Plant is located on Saunders Point at the east end of Delta Avenue. The plant is a complete treatment facility which includes disinfection, coagulation/sedimentation, corrosion control, taste and odor control, fluoridation, filtration and storage. The plant has been maintained and upgraded over the years to keep up with modern technology and to continuously improve our finished water quality.
The Gladstone Water Department operates and maintains the Filtration Plant along with its distribution system which runs throughout the city. The distribution system includes over 37 miles of water main, 1,800 customer laterals, a 500,000 gallon ground storage tank, a 1,000,000 gallon under ground elevated reservoir, a 200,000 gallon elevated storage tank, one booster station and 265 fire hydrants. The department also installs and maintains over 2,000 water meters and provides a variety of other customer services.
