The City’s Water Division is responsible for maintaining and operating the City’s water system with the goal of providing a safe, efficient, and continuous supply of fresh, potable water. The Department oversees 20 groundwater wells, the Loy E. Cook 1-million gallon water storage tower, and over 200 miles of water distribution pipelines.

The Water Division is responsible for ensuring compliance with State and Federal regulations. They maintain records on water production and consumption, test for biological and mineral contaminants, monitor system performance, and manage water treatment. Additionally, they oversee the Water Waste Patrol program and a city-wide cross-connection control and backflow prevention program. This includes testing, repairing, and certifying City-owned backflow devices. The Water Division frequently interacts with the public, providing assistance during emergency repairs and responding to inquiries regarding water and sewer concerns.
