Supplying Clean Drinking Water to Four Customer Cities

Clean, treated, ready-to-drink tap water is sold at the wholesale rate of $1.54/1000 gallons of water to four customer cities – Fayetteville, Springdale, Rogers and Bentonville. Each city supplies this water to more than 375,000 customers.

The Urban Water Cycle

Working closely with our customer cities to highlight the Urban Water Cycle, this video shows the movement of water via human use in Northwest Arkansas from Beaver Lake, through the treatment process, distribution to homes, and back into a local waterway. By highlighting different careers involved in the water industry, each customer city’s segment shows the interconnections of the watersheds in NWA, from drinking water to wastewater.
