Recently, the Village of Enon, Ohio, hosted an open house at its newly renovated water treatment plant. The important renovation project resulted in achieving additional water capacity for the plant.
Previously, the water treatment plant housed five water softener systems, which consisted of two smaller systems and three larger systems. Two new tanks were installed during the renovation that match the capacity of the three larger systems. These automatic water softener systems soften the water before it reaches homes and businesses in the village.
The project also involved structural changes including increasing the height of the south side of the facility to match the north side, replacing old piping, and connecting electrical power sources. LJB provided architectural design and water systems engineering services for the project.
The event included the unveiling of the new lettering on the building, and the renaming of the facility after former Mayor Charles Eugene Koons. Koons served the longest tenure as mayor in the village to date, and one of his major accomplishments as mayor was the implementation of the drinking water system for Enon.
