The Alameda County Water Treatment Plant, a 35.5 million dollar facility, is capable of producing a maximum of 35 million gallons of potable water per day. Smith & Sons Electric, in conjunction with the water treatment facility, completed a 1.2 Mega Watt Electrical Generating Plant that supplies all the plants electrical needs. Smith & Sons Electric was also the provider and installer of the PLC computer based, redundant, programmable local controllers that provide process and control monitoring. This facility also uses the state-of-the-art ozone disinfection system that reduces the use of chemicals in the water treatment process. As an example of the scope of the electrical work required at this facility, the following materials were installed: 26,400 feet of underground electrical conduit, 87,900 feet of exposed conduit throughout the plant, over 1,163,800 feet of electrical wire and cable, and over 23,000 man-hours.
