The City of Independence Water Department is committed to providing the highest quality product to you at the most reasonable cost. To us, product is more than water. We believe every aspect of our contact with you is a part of our product, including water treatment, service, billing and distribution.

The City of Independence supplies water to about 250,000 people, including residents of Independence and 12 wholesale customers.

The water is supplied from 42 wells located at the Courtney Bend Water Treatment Plant. The well water is softened and disinfected at the treatment plant and exceeds all federal, state, and local quality regulations.

The Consumer Confidence Report shows results from tests conducted at approved and certified laboratories. In addition, the Water Department performs over 50,000 tests each year before, during, and after treatment.

Our mission is to deliver the highest quality product at the most reasonable cost possible.

Quality is not only in your water, but in all areas of your Water Department.
