With an annual output of over 1.5 Billion gallons, the Peekskill Water Department continues to provide its residents with water of the highest quality at a reasonable cost. Water Department Personnel continually monitor the water quality from its Wiccopee Reservoir through the Peekskill Hollow Brook. Aggressive watershed inspections protect the quality of the source water.
Our water filtration plant is manned twenty,-four hours a day, year-round with certified experienced operators and continues to meet rigorous demands of State and Federal health requirements. It is our responsibility to bring you safe drinking water. It is your responsibility to use that water wisely.
Remember, conservation of water during times of drought and shortage in our water supply is everyone's responsibility. It takes approximately fifteen gallons of water being released from our reservoir for one gallon of water to reach our pump station. A simple dripping faucet could result in tens of thousands of gallons of water being wasted. Use, do not abuse, our most precious resource - water.
