Located on the Llano River at the local water treatment plant, eye-catching fountain aerators began operation in Llano, Texas, a few weeks ago. 

The aerators were added to keep source water continuously flowing and ultimately help the treatment facility remove total organic carbons. 

Anchored to the riverbed in about seven feet of water and illuminated at night, the fountains are an aesthetic improvement and a technical enhancement to the treatment process. 

An article on Llanonews.com says a Texas Department of Agriculture grant will cover 80 percent of the project. 

It would take about an hour to remove the fountains in the event of a significant rain event, City of Llano Utility Director Josh Becker said in the article. Routinely monitoring weather conditions will prevent the fountain aerators from being damaged. 

The aerators will help the plant increase its water holding capability and address local water shortage issues, says the article. 

Has your drinking water facility implemented fountain aerators? How have they benefited the plant and surrounding communities?
