Our Water Division is responsible for operating and maintaining the City’s potable (drinking) water production, distribution, and storage. We are fortunate to live in a water-rich area, and delivering safe water to our residents and businesses is a top priority.
Production, Delivery, and Storage
The City of Leavenworth’s water system consists of two pressure zones, one booster station, three wells adjacent to the Wenatchee River, one surface water treatment plant drawing from Icicle Creek, two reservoirs, and a 23 mile network of distribution mains. The system serves approximately 1400 residential and commercial connections providing roughly 320 million gallons annually. Staff work 7 days a week, every day of the year to ensure the City’s water is safe and dependable. For an in-depth analysis of the city’s supply and distribution system as well as detailed descriptions of planning data, design standards, improvements, and finances please refer to the 2018 Water System Plan.
Smart Water Meters
As part of an ongoing effort to improve services to our community, the City of Leavenworth has installed smart water meters, and each account holder can now access their own smart meter portal, enabling you to review and analyze water usage, identify patterns, and even compare usage data against the weather data.
