About Our Water
Water is produced at wells and is treated with chlorine for sterilization. From the wells, water is pumped to one of two water towers. The towers are connected the distribution system where it is distributed to over 1000 customers. At each customer's connection water follows through the meter which registers the volume used in hundred cubic feet. One hundred cubic feet is equal to 748 gallons of water. Meter readers pull information off each meter every month which is inputted into the billing system. 

In 2016, the City will be replacing all the meters in the system with a new radio reading capable SENSUS system. The new system will allow residents to more closely monitor their consumption through a web portal. The radio read system also eliminates the the need to read each individual meter by hand. As part of the change, billing will be transitioned into gallon units.
