Treatment Process staff helps to transform the waters of the Potomac River and all sources into pure, fresh drinking water around the clock.

All of these tanks, contains in excess of 10.2 million gallons of water.
*6 booster pump stations, 13 storage tanks, and approximately 460 miles of water main are necessary to reach the homes and businesses of the rest of our customers.
Water Distribution picks up where the Treatment Process leaves off. As the water flows from each of the pump stations, reservoirs, and tanks, it travels through a carefully designed system of pipes, valves, and fittings to reach each customer.
