Water Distribution Section

The Water Distribution Division is responsible for maintaining and repairing the pipelines that carry water throughout the City’s water distribution system. The division’s responsibilities include water main maintenance and repair, leak detection, testing and inspection, hydrant maintenance and valve maintenance. 

The division is also responsible for the installation, maintenance and replacement of water meters. More than 9,400 residential water meters are read three times per year on a quarterly basis.  High-volume customers, such as commercial and industrial accounts, are typically billed on a monthly basis.
