Culligan Water of Springfield, Bringing Better Water to Your Home

On an average day, the Springfield water system has a treatment capacity of 275 million gallons per day that serve the residents in the greater Springfield metropolitan area.  While this water is treated, it is important to know where your water comes from and the risks that it can bring with it into your home.  Culligan Water of Springfield will help you understand your local water problems and can help make every drop of your 82 gallons clean, great-tasting, and efficient.

Approximately 80 percent of Springfield’s drinking water comes from surface water (lakes, rivers) and the rest from ground water (wells, spring). City Utilities’ Fulbright and Blackman Water Treatment Plants use a combination of sources for water treatment, including both surface and ground water. Fulbright is located on the northern edge of Springfield and is served by Fulbright Spring (the original source for the city), a deep well, and McDaniel Lake. The Blackman Plant is in the southeastern corner of the city and receives water from Fellows Lake, Stockton Lake and/or the James River. Both Fellows and McDaniel Lakes can be supplemented with water from Stockton Lake. Also, one deep well is located in the distribution system and is used as an additional source when needed.

Since it is a surface water source, it is susceptible to several factors that can impact the water that comes out of your tap. Before being taken to one of Springfield’s treatment plants, this water may contain the following:

  • Microbial Contaminants
  • Inorganic Contaminants
  • Pesticides and Herbicides
  • Organic Chemical Contaminants
  • Radioactive Contaminants

While the city ensures that the water meets both EPA and FDA regulations before it gets to your home, these contaminants can have a lingering effect on the smell and taste of your water.  It is important to note that while it may not be pleasant to drink water with unpleasant tastes and odors, only groups of people who are immune-compromised (including persons undergoing chemotherapy, people with immune system disorders, some elderly, and infants) are vulnerable to these contaminants.
