Potable Water Supply, Treatment, Storage and Distribution
The Wasco Sanitary District (WSD) is served by three wells, one elevated storage tank and one water treatment plant to facilitate radium removal.  
The average daily demand / pumpage for the WSD is usually about 350,000 gallon per day.  The District can pump 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 gpm (Gallons Per Minute)
Well 2 – 400 gpm
Well 3 – 600 gpm (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 maximum capacity of the system from a well perspective is 1400 gpm with the ability to expand to 1800 gpm.

The WSD has one elevated storage tank with a capacity of 400,000 gallons. All water pumped from the three wells is treated for Radium removal through an ion exchange process. Three filters are located in a single building near well 2.
