The Water Department delivers and treats safe drinking water from the City's wells and towers to residents, businesses, and visitor users of the system. The City's water supply is solely supplied by underground wells and the department is responsible for the maintenance and operation of the City's system including citywide water conservation efforts to help manage the City's water demands.
The City of Osage Beach began water infrastructure and operations in the late 1990s. Today the City's water system is 98% built out and available to most all residents and businesses within the City limits. The water system currently serves over 5,400 equivalent users and consumption billed annually among those users averages over 300 MILLION gallons per year. Infrastructure includes over 77 miles of water mains, 667 backflow preventers, 811 fire hydrants, 7 wells, and 4 water towers for storage.
The Water Department recognizes the importance of responsible and safe water supply and treatment to the public health and safety and the importance of fiscal responsibility. The City's water system is complex and very unique given the Lake's topography, and the department continues to look for ways to reduce costs and improve efficiency, including streamlining services and consistently reviewing processes and policies to ensure the best job is done.
