Our water system is supplied by a primary and a backup well, which draw from underground aquifers. Water is pumped up to two storage reservoirs located north of the school. Each reservoir is capable of storing nearly 250,000 gallons of water. From there distribution is made through over 30,000 feet of water main supplying more than 130 active residential connections. Annually, we use almost 30 millions gallons of water. The cost to maintain our system throughout the year usually exceeds $50,000. This amount includes electrical use, water tests, salary, excise taxes, audits and routine maintenance.
