Potable Water Supply, Treatment, Storage and Distribution
The Wasco Sanitary District (WSD) is served by three wells, one water tower and one water treatment plant to facilitate radium removal.  
The average daily demand for the Wasco Sanitary District users is about 350,000 gallon per day.  The district has pumped up to 900,000 gallons on high demand days.

Wells: – The WSD currently operates three wells with design capacities as noted below:
Well 1 – 400 gallons per minute
Well 2 – 400 gallons per minute
Well 3 – 600 gallons per minute (with the ability to expand to 1000 gpm)

Wells one and two are drilled into the St. Peter Sandstone and well three is drilled into Galesville Limestone/ Sandstone. The total maximum pumping capacity of the system is 1400 gpm with the ability to expand to 1800 gpm.

The water tower has a capacity of 400,000 gallons. The water we pump is treated with an ion exchange process to remove the radium.  The treatment process also results in soft water.  The three softeners are located in a building near well 2 (underneath the water tower).
