The Water Distribution crew is responsible for the connection and disconnection of water service and for the maintenance and repair of the city's 80 miles of water lines, water meters, water valves, and fire hydrants. Water main breaks typically consumes a large portion of the distribution crew's time, especially during long periods of dry weather or during periods of extreme freezing conditions.

Elevated Storage
The City has 1.25 million gallons of elevated storage located in the city's three water towers. These towers not only provide storage, but also create pressure for the distribution system.

Capital Improvements
Capital improvements scheduled for the water distribution system in the next couple of years include:
  • Creating a water loop around the northeast portion of the city to improve water pressure and to allow for housing development
  • Painting the city's three water towers
  • Creating a water loop from 21st to 59 Highway for new commercial development
