DID YOU KNOW:
Petersburg’s Water System dates to 1856 (officially). Today, Public Utilities maintains over 225 miles of public water lines, 6 water storage tanks, 1,500 fire hydrants, 2 water pump stations, 200 miles of public sewer line, and 18 sewer pump stations. The City receives finished water from the Appomattox River Water Authority and conveys wastewater to the South Central Wastewater Authority. On any given day, nearly 5 million gallons of drinking water move through the City’s water system to serve approximately 32,000 customers. That’s enough water to fill a football field 15’ deep.
