Water utility employees perform numerous tests every day and maintain more than 1,200 miles of lines, so that when you turn on the tap, your family will receive water that is clean and safe. Richmond's Department of Public Utilities' (DPU) water plant produces up to 132 million gallons per day (MGD) and supplies water to Richmond as well as surrounding counties. DPU remains committed to ensuring it always meets or exceeds federal regulations as well as the increasing regional demands for reliable, high-quality drinking water.
