WATER DEPARTMENT

water photoThe City of Spearfish Water Department is overseen by the department foreman and utilizes a 4 person crew (3 which are shared with the sewer department). The crew is responsible for inspection and maintenance of the City’s 65 miles of water line, 6 wells which produce high quality water (treated with fluoride and chlorine), 2 water booster stations, and 3.9 Million gallons of water storage facilities.

The City’s water usage averaged about 1.7 million gallons per day in 2004 (translates to over 2 days worth of storage under normal usage). The crew samples for bacteria 12 times per month at various points around the City and also samples all chemical samples required by the South Dakota Department of Environment and Natural Resources every year (please refer to the water quality report). All crew members are required to obtain and maintain certification for water treatment, water distribution, as well as wastewater collection.

The hardness of the water is about 12-15 Grains Per Gallon (GPG)

Fee to receive bulk water: $.25 for 50 gallons.
