FY 2014 -2015 SMA Water/Sewer Design Projects: Met with SMA Staff regarding next fiscal year projects. Pipebursting: SMA staff compiling a list of lines. Since most of the lines categorized as High priority will be completed this fiscal year, the next contract will likely concentrate on neighborhoods with sewer main issues, i.e. Smoking Oaks or Larkins Meadow in order to cut down on mobilization costs for contractor hopping to various locations. Water rehab: SMA staff request that plans be prepared to replace all water mains in Thompson Heights Addition (south of Independence and east of Center) due to the high incidence of main breaks in that area. They request that plans and contract documents for these projects be completed by July 1 so that they can be bid out as soon as the new fiscal year begins.

You can view more data and information on the Shawnee Lake No 1 levels as well as view recent historical level information by visiting the USGS Shawnee lake site. Note this is an external site not managed by the City of Shawnee.
Another useful online site is the US Drought Monitor
that tracks current drought conditions across the United States and can be used to visualize the current issues.
Most people are not aware that there is a USGS Shawnee Lake Weather Station
set up at the Twin Lakes to record weather data for the area. Visit it to get temperature, precipitation, relative humidity, wind speed and direction, and barametric pressure of the lake area.

It is our goal to provide sufficient and safe water at the lowest possible cost to the citizens of Shawnee.
The City of Shawnee utilizes the Shawnee Twin Lakes and Wes Watkins Reservoir as its raw water source. They have an estimated combined storage of 34,000 acre feet with a surface area of 2,436 acres and dependable yield of 4.3 MGD. The Wes Watkins reservoir has increased the raw water available to the community. Wes Watkins estimated storage is 11,581 acre feet of water at Normal (municipal) Pool elevations; at its flood pool elevation, the reservoir volume will be 21,869 acre feet and the surface area will be 1,640 acres. The Pottawatomie County Development Authority is the owner and developer of this project in partnership with the City of Shawnee. The dependable yield of the Wes Watkins reservoir is 4.5 MGD. Water from the three lakes will be used on a rotating basis to protect the water rights and provide for the needs of the City, PCDA and other users.
The City of Shawnee has four water storage towers with a total capacity of 2.5 million gallons.
The Water Distribution Division, with a staff of 9, maintains more than 150 miles of water main, more than 10,000 water meters from ¾" to 6", and 15 miles of raw water lines. Also includes repair and replacement of water mains, and service lines, operation and repair of valves, repair and replacement of fire hydrants.
The Wastewater Collection Division, with a staff of 7 maintains 135 miles of sewer mains, and ten lift stations. This includes repair and replacement of sewer mains, manholes, and video inspection of sewer mains. One crew spends eight hours every day jet cleaning sewer mains to keep them flowing properly. This division has flushed millions of feet of sewer line over the years.
The Water Treatment Plant produces an average 4.4 million gallons of potable water each day. The water treatment facility is located on south Kickapoo near the North Canadian River. The first plant was originally built in 1895.
The Northside Wastewater Treatment Plant increased to 3.0 million gallons per day by a $3,500,000 project completed in June, 1997. The plant currently treats an average of 1.59 MGD of wastewater each day, much of which comes from the industrial area located in the northern area of Shawnee. As a part of the Northside Plant expansion a new interceptor line was installed from Wolverine Road and Harrison to the plant. That project eliminated a lift station and provided increased capacity to the industrial areas north of the plant. Improvements at the plant included two new clarifiers, increased sludge digestor capacity, a new chlorine basin and chemical building.
The Southside Wastewater Treatment Plant currently treats an average of 2.27 million gallons of wastewater each day. It has a capacity of 3.0 MGD. The Southside Treatment Plant serves the area south of the ridge line that divides the city. This includes the central business district and the major residential areas of the City. Both plants have excess capacity. The population equivalent of the treatment plants is 46,000.
The Industrial Pretreatment Program was approved by EPA in 1983 and revised in 1993. Objectives of the program include the following:
- Prevent the introduction of pollutants into the POTW which will pass through or interfere with the treatment operations and/or the use or disposal of the municipal sludge;
- Improve the feasibility of recycling and reclaiming municipal and industrial wastewater and sludge;
- Enforce applicable Federal Categorical Standards and requirements; and
- Generally, to reduce the health and environmental risk of pollutants discharged to the wastewater collection and treatment system.
