Where does my water come from?

The Springfield Water Treatment Plant receives its drinking water from 12 wells located in the Mad River Valley Buried Aquifer. To minimize the risk of contamination, the City has a Wellhead Protection Area that encompasses all lands within a 5-year time of travel to the well field. The City has developed a comprehensive plan to manage all potential sources of contamination within this zone and to minimize impacts to the aquifer.
