The City of Dayton Department of Water joins National Groundwater Association to participate in an annual observance of the National Ground Water Awareness Week (#GWAW2018) to highlight the responsible development, management, and use of water.
The City of Dayton Department of Water pumps the water from the ground where it is closely monitors before it goes to our water treatment facilities. Once the water reaches the treatment plant it is stored in basins and treated so that large particles fall out. After that, our water is tested 24 hours a day 7 days a week. The water passes through a final sand filter and is then pumped through the distribution system to Dayton’s homes, schools, and businesses.
As Dayton provides high quality drinking water that meets and exceeds Ohio EPA regulatory requirements to over 400,000 customers, we continue to maintain a regional corporative effort by balancing economic development and drinking water protection.
Our water supply is naturally beautiful; together, we can keep it that way for the generations to come.
