Water Supply & Distribution
Village Water System Inc. gets its water from deep wells in the Terrace and Wicox Aquifers in Bossier Parish. These wells are strategically located to best serve our customers. The water is then treated and pumped into the water system.
The system is composed primarily of PVC piping with some transite and Cast Iron. Line sizes vary from 1.5 inch to 12 inch in diameter. The system is automated to turn on the wells and booster pumps when water levels in storage tanks drop.
The water produced at the LAAP, Bellevue, Hwy 80 and Fillmore plants maintain Hill Top tank storage facility. The Hill Top tank acts as an elevated storage tank because of the elevation of its area. With the exception of the Telephone Hill plant area and the Budís plant area the LAAP, Bellevue, HWY 80, Fillmore wells & Hill Top storage tank feed from East of Goodwill Rd. to wafer rd. This is an isolated system and for operational purposes it has been named the west side of the system. Both, the LAAP site wells and the Fillmore wells are controlled from the Hill Top Storage tank. The wells at Fillmore are controlled via radio. The LAAP wells are also controlled by a radio signal. The new Hwy 80 plant is controlled via radio from Fillmore.
The Bellevue plant services the area from LA. HWY 528 @ intersection of Goodwill Rd. to intersection with LA HWY157. It continues to serve LA. HWY 157 North to Calhoun rd., South to Fillmore plant. A pressure tank, the demand of the system in the Princeton area (described above) as well as the demand of the Hill Top tank water level control wells at Bellevue plant.
Wells 12, 13, 16 and 17 maintain the elevated tank at Fire Station Rd. and Adner Rd. This is an isolated system and considered the East side of the system. All the wells are controlled by water level at the elevated storage tank. Telephone lines control Wells 16 and 17. Wells 13 and 14 are controlled by the probe system in the tank. The booster pumps at the Tall Pines Station are energized by the wells 12 and 13. Wells 16 and 17 are controlled by a probe system. Wells 18 and 19 are feed the ground storage tank at the Hwy 80. The Hwy 80 plant is energized by the water level at Fillmore. Fillmore is energized by the water level at Hilltop ground storage tank.
Well 15 maintains the ground storage tank at Budís plant. Two booster Pumps an air compressor and a pressure tank maintain the system pressure. This is also an isolated system that supplies water to the Merrywoods and Mimosa Gardens subdivisions.
Currently required bacteriological samples to meet the requirements of the Total coliform Rule are collected by the personnel from the Bossier Parish Health Unit and analyzed by Louisiana Department of Health Laboratories. Additionally, chemical, physical and radiological samples for compliance with the Louisiana Safe Drinking Water Act are collected and analyzed by the Department of Health Personnel. Water system personnel will collect and analyze operational control parameters to insure the proper day-to-day operation of the system.
The Board latest efforts toward providing the best solution to more storage and better transmission of water decided for adding an additional 500,000 gallon water tank and a booster station. After a thorough review, the recommendation is to construct a booster station at the VWS Wafer Road site with an adjacent 500,000 gallon storage tank. Mr. Fayad and Mr. Armstrong both concur that this recommendation will provide the best long range solution for storage and movement of water throughout the system. Currently this plant will service its adjacent area as in Wafer Road members and the Forest Hills Subdivision.. However, this plant this new plant was built with the capacity to keep up with the near future population rate of growth.
