Water & Wastewater
The Public Works Department is responsible for the City’s water utility and sanitary sewer utility, including maintenance of conveyance systems, treatment and monitoring, planning for expansion of the existing system, and construction of extensions.
The City can treat 4.1 million gallons of water per day, and the existing service area covers about 3,000 acres, generally defined as the city limits. The City also owns and operates two water mains outside city limits east of Ferndale.
