Water Distribution

Potable water for each residence, school, and business in the City of University Park is provided through a network of pipes commonly referred to as the "distribution system." This distribution system is buried below most alley and some street rights-of-way throughout the community. The Infrastructure Maintenance Division staff routinely performs the following services:

  • Install / repair water service taps (water main to property line) for each residential or commercial customer
  • Repair pipe failures within the distribution system
  • Read meters for 9,000+ residential and commercial accounts
  • Maintain two 2-million gallon elevated water storage tanks
  • Support the Engineering Division in its design and reconstruction of aging distribution infrastructure
