It’s no secret that much of the water infrastructure across the country is aging and in need of repair or replacement. Our engineering and operations teams work closely with our communities to identify problem areas and put plans into action to upgrade our systems and infrastructure.  

Improving system resiliency is also a major focus to help protect plants, underground systems, and other crucial infrastructure from extreme weather events, natural hazards and malevolent threats.

Across the country, we manage approximately:

  • 80 surface water treatment plants
  • 540 groundwater treatment plants
  • 175 wastewater treatment plants
  • 53,700 miles of transmission, distribution and collection mains and pipes
  • 1,200 groundwater wells
  • 1,700 water and wastewater pumping stations
  • 1,100 treated water storage facilities
  • 74 dams

We invest more than $1 billion annually into our systems to ensure continued reliability for our customers, who count on us every day. In most of our service areas, high-quality water service still costs about or less than a penny per gallon.
