Drinking Water System

The Public Works Division operates and maintains approximately 45 miles of water main pipelines and approximately 2,700 water meters within the City limits.

It is the customer's responsibility to maintain the water line from the water meter to the house or business, including any backflow prevention device that may exist. If you suspect a problem with the water line at your home or business, please call a plumber.
