From its humble beginnings of serving a few hundred homes in the early 1950s, Chandler Water has emerged as one of the larger water systems in the area. Spread across three townships, the Chandler Water system today provides quality water to nearly 7,000 residential, industrial and commercial customers. Through interconnects, Chandler also has the ability to provide support to its neighboring water systems in Boonville, Elberfeld, and Evansville, if the need arises.
Pulling water from underground wells, Chandler’s state-of-the-art Water Treatment Facility near the Ohio River provides nearly 5 million gallons per day pumping capacity. Five water towers provide the department with nearly 2.5 million gallons in storage.
Technology and SCADA systems are used to provide 24/7 monitoring of the Water Treatment Facility, water towers and distribution system. In addition, Chandler Water implemented a new metering system in 2012 that utilizes wireless technology to more effectively read meters, detect problems, and provide customers with a better picture of their overall water consumption.
