About the Office . . .




The Muskingum County Water Department provides a safe supply of water to more than 8000 homes and businesses in the county. As with all community water systems, the county system must comply with rules established by the Safe Drinking Water Act. The Water Department treats the water and monitors the water at many points within the system to assure the customersí safety. See the Consumer Confidence Reports for specific information on your portion of the water system. The employees of the Water Department are dedicated to providing the customers with the highest quality water service. Please visit other pages on our site for information on the water system and its history, how the system maintains water quality, and the Countyís continuing efforts to upgrade the system and serve additional customers.


A safe, sustainable supply of water for drinking, cooking, bathing, and cleaning is critical for good health. Although 75% of the planetís surface is covered with water, only 1% of all the water on the planet is readily available for use by humans. Therefore, each of us must learn more about the importance of water in our lives and do our part to protect the water around us. The U.S. EPA web site Water Kidís Stuff provides sites for fun and learning, guidance on what you can do to prevent pollution and protect the environment, environmental activities for children, sources of educational materials and learning aids that focus on water quality and the environment, and information on childrenís environmental health.
