Since the late 1980’s, Haltom City has purchased all drinking water from the City of Fort Worth. In order to provide a daily average demand of 8 million gallons, the City currently has a storage capacity of 12 million gallons and a pumping capacity of 14,000 gallons per minute (20 million gallons per day). The safe drinking water act establishes standards for all drinking water, which include the daily monitoring of chlorine residual, pH, and daily sampling for bacteriology. Recent improvements include a supervisory control and data acquisition system (SCADA) installed in 1999/2000 to monitor the City’s water distribution system. Water production is also responsible for the cross connection control program.
