Water and sanitary sewer services are provided to most Woodbury residents by the city's Utility Division. This division operates and maintains wells, water storage facilities, sanitary sewer lines and lift stations; flushes and repairs city hydrants; and reads water meters.
A city-owned and city-operated water system makes up a major portion of the Woodbury Utility Division. The water supply comes from wells with a total pumping capacity of about 19,184 gallons per minute or 27.6 million gallons per day. To handle peak water loads, Woodbury also has five water towers and one ground reservoir. The water is chlorinated and fluoridated to meet Department of Health standards. Some Woodbury properties obtain their water through private wells and are not served by the municipal water systems.
There are occasions when utility personnel need to gain access to your home. The two most common occurrences are for the initial seal-up of the water meter and for repair work to water meters. Utility personnel wear city uniforms and carry a picture I.D. card. Residents having any questions regarding utility personnel should call the Public Works Department at (651) 714-3720.
