Water Distribution Division
This Division has approximately 465 miles of water lines, 17 water storage tanks, 12 water pumping stations, and 3 water treatment plants that currently service 15,275 customers. The majority of the water supplied by the County is obtained from the Avon Lake Water Treatment Plant via The Rural Lorain County Water Authority. This water is distributed in the County's Northwest water system (Lake Erie Drainage Basin). Water is delivered at three (3) separate locations which can deliver 14 million gallons per day, while the present average daily consumption is approximately 4 million gallons per day. Three different well water systems server areas in the southern portion (Ohio River Basin) of the County. These are the Sharon, Chippewa Lake, and Westfield systems.
