The Water Division is responsible for planning, constructing and maintaining the city's integrated water supply, purification, and transmission and distribution (T&D) system—which includes Lake Springfield, the lakeside Water Purification Plant, five water storage tanks, and approximately 750 miles of water mains. The Division's primary mission is to ensure that all utility customers will have a safe and plentiful water supply in both the immediate and long-term future. Toward this end, the Division operates a 24-hour laboratory where chemists and plant operators consistently and continually check drinking water quality. Division employees are also actively involved in searching out the best options for protecting our current supply source and planning for long-range needs.
