The Town has two water systems. Each of these systems can run independently from one another.
The water systems have a total of six wells, along with a 2.5 million gallon water storage capacity. They service an average of 2,650 meters.
Each day our staff conducts a number of regulatory tests and analytical processes to ensure the safety and quality of our drinking water.
Some of the short term goals include upgrading main lines, adding more storage tanks, acquiring more wells, and continued training for staff. One of the main goals is to always maintain the best potable water possible. In order to ensure this, water quality assurance tests are performed on a monthly, quarterly, and yearly basis.
The Town of Florence has two wastewater treatment plants, each running independently. Influent water is treated differently at each of the wastewater plants. Such measures as the use of Bio-Dredge (agent used in feeding organisms that eat odor causing bacteria), masking agents, and chlorinated water are used to help control odor in the collection system.
Some of the short term goals include sewer line maintenance, continued line upgrades, sewer line extensions (based on annexation), upgrading of equipment, and continued training for staff.
One of the major goals for the Florence Wastewater Division is building a new wastewater plant.
In the event of an emergency after hours, you can call the Police Department to have our on-call personnel dispatched.
