Frequently Asked Questions

Water Pressure

Q: What does MWA do to make sure there is enough water pressure and volume at all times throughout its system?


We “balance” the water system by having it separated into 6 different zones so that there is adequate pressure in each. There are also water storage tanks and 7 booster pumping stations throughout our system to make sure enough volume and pressure is always available; these are constantly monitored 24 hours a day and have nearly 37 million gallons of capacity. The Amerson Water Treatment Plant has also different sized pumps it can use to best match the total needs of the water system.
