Water Distribution System and the Improvement Project
The City of Greenville Drinking Water Distribution System uses ground water as the source of supply. The ground water is pumped from seven (7) wells in a central well field located on the Southeast side of the City. All seven wells are tapped into a single aquifer. The water quality of the source is very high, and currently, the only treatment added is one part per million (ppm) of Fluoride to aide in the prevention of tooth decay.

The city is committed to protecting and improving the quality of our water and the service we provide to our customers.
