Our water system is comprised of the most state of the art equipment and facilities that provide services for approximately 9,000 residential, 800 commercial and 40 Industrial customers. The department services water main sizes from 2” to 30” pipe. We have approximately 185 miles of water main in our system that serve customers both inside and outside the city limits. Furthermore, the city has over 125 miles of sanitary sewer lines. Both Water and Sewer systems have been in operation since 1910.

The department has a variety of equipment for cleaning the sewer system including a remote controlled robotic camera. The camera operates from a computer module located in the rear of the work vehicle and has the capability to see 360 degrees in color. This is one of the many diagnostic tools the department has to inspect and service sewer lines.
