Beaver Water District’s $104 million expansion project, begun in 2002, insures that there will be drinking water supplies available to Northwest Arkansas well into the future. The Croxton plant and its expansion can produce up to 100 MGD of drinking water. The original 40 MGD Steele facility has been modified and updated. A new raw water intake and a new solid residuals handling facility are now in operation. In addition, a LEED Gold certified Administration Center opened in 2009. The Center is home to the District’s Water Education Center, which provides public access to education exhibits from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday. The District’s expansion program is funded from reserves and the sale of bonds.
