Water Treatment
The Water Treatment Division of the Public Works Department routinely monitors our drinking water for potential contaminants. We are dedicated to safe water and have our own water quality laboratory. This allows the Public Works Department to sample water, obtain results, and conduct additional nonregulatory and process-control analysis.
