Characteristics of Water System

The Village of Lithopolis receives its drinking water from three wells. The wells are located at the water plant and draw water from the underground Walnut Creek aquifer system. The Village has a treatment and storage capacity of 500,000 gallons per day. The Village also has an emergency connection to the City of Canal Winchester water system.

Ground water is inherently hard, and village hardness is generally between 140-180ppm or 8.1-10.5 grains of hardness. You can find a schematic of the water treatment process below.

How Our Water is Treated
  • Watch for Leaks

    Water leaks are wasteful and costly. If your water bills seems high, your first step should be to check your pipes and faucets for water leaks. Even a small leak, no larger than the tip of a pencil, can result in a loss of 36,000 gallons per month.

    How Leaks Affect Water Bills
