About City of Hamilton, Ohio Water

The City processes raw water from the aquifer at 2 water treatment plants.
The underground distribution infrastructure of the Water System currently consists of over 289 miles of water mains throughout and in areas adjacent to the City. The City provides, on average, over 18.5 million gallons of water per day (MGD) to approximately 25,000 customers in Hamilton and portions of Butler County.
