Water Rates Increased on November 7, 2016

The City of Evansville’s Water Department withdraws water from the Ohio River. The 60-million-Water Utilitygallon-per-day treatment plant filters, treats, monitors and tests the water prior to delivering it to customers. Our laboratory tests the water within the plant and throughout the distribution system 365 days a year to ensure the quality meets or exceeds all federal and state water quality standards.

The Evansville Water Department delivers water to approximately 60,000 customers in Vanderburgh, Gibson and Warrick counties either directly or indirectly through wholesale customers of German Township Water, Gibson Water, Town of Elberfeld or Town of Newburgh.

EWSU has approximately 1,000 miles of water main lines, 6,000 fire hydrants and eight storage tanks in its system. On average, 25 million gallons of water per day are processed and treated.
