What do our public water systems in Hampton Roads look like?
Our system is a complex network of miles and miles of underground pipes. This unseen infrastructure ensures the safe and reliable supply of water to our homes, businesses and hospitals every day of the year.
In fact, in our region, the public water systems are supported by 12 drinking water treatment plants, with more than 100 wells and 23 reservoirs storing over 34 billion gallons of water. Once this water is used, more than 1,500 pump stations carry sewage to the 13 wastewater treatment plants across the region to be treated for safe release back into local waterways and groundwater.
