Domestic Water

Domestic water, also called "tap", "drinking" or "potable" water, is for the use inside of your home, office or institution and is intended for general consumption and contact with the body.  This water has gone through a series of procedures to make sure that it is safe for human consumption and and general domestic water use.

Water agencies continually test their water for purification.  Domestic water, as the term is commonly referred to in technical or construction terms, is brought from wells and reservoirs through pipelines to the water agencies and then pumped to your community through local water mains.

Sewer Manholes

Sewer maintenance holes, or "sewer manholes",as they are commonly referred to, are built out of concrete and provide a human access point for the maintenance of the sanitary sewer system.  These manholes come in a variety of sizes, but the most common are 48" and 60" diameter manholes.

Manholes are located in the city right-of-way along the path of the sewer main and are installed at approximately every 300 LF to 400 LF of sewer main line and are also built at intersecting main lines and at turns in the main line.
