What is the City of Wichita doing to ensure its customers continue to have access to a safe water supply?

There is a staff of on-site technical experts continuously monitoring equipment performance and asset condition in order to avoid repairs that could disrupt the treatment process. The City maintains a contingency fund reserved for repairs and keeps duplicate parts on hand to ensure repairs can be made immediately.

The City also has an Emergency Water Plan which includes:

  • A list of vendors who are ready to respond 24/7 with specialized equipment
  • An emergency water supply in underground storage that can be used while repairs are made.
