The water system generates twenty million gallons per day (20 MGD) distributed over nine hundred thirty (930) miles of pipes. The sewer system treats approximately eighteen and half million gallons per day (18.5 MGD) from six hundred seventy-three (673) miles of sewer pipe with ten thousand (10,000) manholes and one hundred thirty-two (132) lift stations.
