The Water Works Fund provides clean drinking water and fire protection to over 8,330 customers in the unincorporated area of the county. The water source is surface water from the Chattahoochee River. The Water Works Fund consists of three divisions – Administration, Filter Plant, and Distribution. The Administration Division is responsible for the overall supervision of the Fund and conducts monthly customer billing and customer service support. The Filter Plant Division operates a 3 MGD plant and is responsible for all water treatment operations and ensures that all treated water is in compliance with all state and federal regulations. The Distribution Division is responsible for the maintenance of over 500 miles of water lines, ten pump stations, eight elevated water storage tanks, and four ground water storage tanks, repairs leaks, and installs water meters. This Fund also purchases water from the neighboring Columbus Water Department as needed and Talbot County for a section of the Oak Mountain area.
