Water Treatment Process
The City of Lompoc uses a conventional treatment process to ensure the safety and quality of our drinking water. Our process consists of disinfection, coagulation, flocculation, sedimentation, and filtration with diatomaceous earth (DE). Constructed in 1964, the treatment plant was originally designed to allow filtration of approximately 6 million gallons per day (MGD). With some enhancements and additions of filters, our capability is now approximately 10 MGD.
The City of Lompoc is also responsible for the operation of Frick Springs treatment plant. This plant consists of a small diatomaceous earth (DE) filtration and disinfection system. The water treated at this plant is collected from seven springs located in the upper hills. Frick Springs water treatment plant must comply with the Surface Water Treatment Rule (SWTR).
