Koch Enid Water Treatment Project
The Koch Fertilizer production plant in Enid, Oklahoma, had a water problem—there wasn't enough and it needed more. The facility was expanding, requiring additional cooling and demineralized water, and a subsequent increase in demand from the city’s potable water supply. The region experienced a severe drought in 2010 that stressed this water supply. To encourage conservation, the cost of water increased, with continued planned rate increases. Koch Fertilizer understood that drought and water scarcity threatened future plant operations.
