Water Resources

Managing Today’s Resources to Meet Tomorrow’s Challenges


Wewrtitle are dedicated to providing our water consumers with high quality drinking water and reliable wastewater services. Water Resources is the department that provides your utility product and the infrastructure necessary for its use: drinking water service and treatment, reclaimed water service, and waste water treatment. We do not provide billing services.

Water Resources is organized into seven divisions. Each division provides a specialized skill set to meet your water and wastewater needs. These divisions include: Administration (along with Water Conservation), Electronic Services, Laboratory Services, Utility Engineering, Water Production, Water Reclamation, and Water & Sewer Field Operations. Each of these divisions work together to meet your drinking water, wastewater, and reclaimed water needs.
