Fire protection service differs from other services provided by the Utility System. Although most fire hydrants and sprinkler connections are rarely used, the utility must be ready to provide adequate water quantities and pressures at all times throughout the distribution system.
In 2010 the City of Prescott established a stormwater utility. The utility is designed to assist with the management of stormwater and other surface water discharges within the Mississippi and St. Croix Rivers.
The Prescott Water Utility was established in 1914. Our water is pumped from 2 aquifers: Jordan Sandstone, and St. Lawrence-Franconia. Our water is removed from these ground water sources using 3 production wells located within the city.
