The Water Division is responsible for operating, maintaining, and improving an extensive system of pipes, hydrants, and treatment processes, all aimed at providing safe and reliable drinking water to and from buildings and homes while ensuring that water is available during emergencies like fires or droughts.
What Comprises the Water Distribution System?
The Town's water system consists of two treatment facilities and eight deep water wells. The 3.2-million-gallons-per-day Plant Number 1 in Arbuckle Acres Park was put online in 2013. Plant Number 2 is a pressure filtration system facility built in 1987 that pumps approximately 900,000 gallons daily. Both treatment facilities chlorinate the water when it is received from the wells. The water is filtered and chlorinated again as it leaves the filters and goes into the system.
The Water Department treats and pumps an average of 1.4 million gallons per day from Brownsburg's treatment plants and purchases approximately 5 million gallons per day of water from Citizens Energy Group. A 2-million-gallon water tower built in 2003 at County Road 700N contains a booster station that pumps 2,400 gallons per minute to the north sector of our community. There is a 1 million gallon water tower located on South Odell Street.
