watertowerIn order to furnish safe drinking water and to provide adequate fire protection, the City of Tomah maintains five active wells with a total of 3,550 gallons per minute capacity. Well #6, located at 517 Packard St., has iron and radium filtration.  Well #10 and #14, both located at 23082 Flare Ave., have radium filtration. Our system also includes: 1,000,000 gallon reservoir; a 500,000 gallon tower; 378,306 feet of water mains (4"-14" diameter); 3,185 water services; 3,927 water meters, 546 fire hydrants; and 991 water main valves.

Maintenance includes: daily inspection at all five wells and testing water as required; weekly checks at the water tower and reservoir. Water mains and services are repaired as needed. Water meters are repaired or replaced as required by the Department of Natural Resources and Public Service Commission rules. Approximately 350 meters require testing each year. Fire hydrants are operated and inspected twice each year during the water main flushing programs. Water main valves are tested on a three-year rotation and are checked by closing and opening.
