Where your Water Comes From
All of Mission Hills CSD water comes from three (3) wells, (1-natural gas and 2- electrical powered wells), that are drilled into the aquifer. The quality of water in an aquifer and the water produced by a well depend on the nature of rock, sand or soil in the aquifer.
How it Gets to You
Mission Hills CSD water is transported from the wells to the treatment plant, where excess iron and manganese are removed and the water is disinfected. From here there are 27.5 miles of various sized pipes that bring the water from the distribution network to your home or business. These pipes require continuous repair and replacement to avoid leaks and system failures.
The district has two storage tanks that hold 1.8 million gallons of water, which are located at the highest point in the district. These tanks provide system pressure allowing for a more economical pumping operation.
