Water Distribution System
Water Distribution is responsible for ensuring a consistently dependable supply of quality water for both domestic consumption and fire service protection.
The municipal water system withdraws raw water from the Rogue River, removes suspended particulates, removes and inactivates pathogens and produces, pumps and stores noncorrosive, palatable water according to federal, state, and local drinking water regulations.
The services delivered in this activity are administered through performance of distinct programs consisting of customer service, water quality, service installation and maintenance, system maintenance, main and hydrant installation, and general operations.
The duties encompassed in these programs include water sampling, water system flushing, meter replacement, water service installation and repair, fire hydrant repair and inspection, backflow prevention inspection, water main repair, utility locates, and customer concerns and requests.
In addition, this activity provides support to both contractors involved in new construction and other city departments during their normal course of business.
