The Cheney Water Division is responsible for operating and maintaining the City's potable water production, distribution, and storage facilities.

About the Production Facility

Production facilities consist primarily of 8 active ground water wells that collectively can produce approximately 3,000 gallons per minute or 4.3 million gallons a day. The pumped potable water travels through an approximate 40-mile network of distribution mains ranging in size from 2 inches to 16 inches in diameter.

In addition to the distribution mains, there are also 3 booster stations that distribute water to the 2 high-pressure zones encompassing the City's water system.

Finally, potable water is stored in 1 of 5 reservoirs with a combined total storage capacity of approximately 4.4 million gallons.
