The Oswego Water Department is responsible for providing potable water to the City of Oswego and the town of Scriba. The water treatment facility has a capacity greater than 16 million gallons per day with processes consisting of chlorination, coagulation, filtration, and fluoridation. The daily flow rate is five to twelve million gallons per day with users that include industrial, commercial, and residential customers, plus the fire protection needs of our community. The water supply comes from Lake Ontario, which is considered one of the finest sources available.
