Gene Pumping Station
Gene Pumping Station: This pumping plant is located two miles west of Whitsett Intake. The facility pumps water from Gene Wash Reservoir through a 16-foot diameter inlet siphon and then lifts it 303 feet to an elevation of 1,037 feet. The water is then delivered to Copper Basin Reservoir. The motors at Gene have the same horsepower as those at Whitsett Intake.
