Water Distribution Department
The department maintains over 140 miles of water mains, checking for and repairing valves or leaks that may occur. They frequently respond to low pressure calls, handle turn-ons and turn-offs, and respond to any calls concerning suspected abnormal water coloration. During 2006 they installed 44 new water taps 1″ – 12″.
These employees are constantly locating and marking mains and services for contractors and they work closely with sub-contractors to maintain efficiency.
Throughout the City there are over 1300 fire hydrants that often need flushed, replaced, and painted. Many hydrant hookups are done throughout the year for contractors.
