Our Water Plan

Efficient. Cost-Effective. No Pipeline Needed.


  • We updated our plan and slashed our potential water usage by more than 100,000 gallons per day.
  • Our new plan calls for around 20,000 gallons of water per day to cool the Clear River Energy Center.
  • That’s 90% less water than the region’s other, less efficient power facilities.

Boosting Johnston’s Economy

  • Invenergy has reached an agreement to become a new water customer of the Town of Johnston.
  • The Clear River Energy Center would use less than 1 percent of Johnston’s available water supply – while paying the city more than $18 million over the course of 20 years.
  • We’ll pay prevailing rate for the water, in addition to annual payments of $500,000 to the town’s General Fund and funding for new athletic fields or scholarships.

No Pipeline Needed

  • Our updated water plan eliminated the need for a new pipeline from Johnston to the Burrillville facility, eliminating road construction and disruption.
  • All of our water will be delivered via just two or three trucks per day.
