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 alleys 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 plus 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.
