Water

The Town of Oliver operates an extensive rural and municipal water system serving domestic water to approximately 2,255 residential, 247 industrial/commercial customers and irrigation water to 585 agriculture connections which equate to irrigating over 3,900 acres of farm land and 175 acres of non-farm land.

Water is supplied from a combination of underground and surface sources and varies with demand during different seasons. For more information on different components of Oliver's water system and to read the latest on water quality discussions, please follow the links on top of this page.

The Water Utility is operated as a single, self-sufficient entity. Although the rural and municipal water systems do run somewhat independently, their costs and expenses are pooled in a single fund. Major past projects, mostly related to the irrigation supply system, have been jointly shared by all water users. The Water Fund has used a combination of reserves and grant money for upgrades and improvements to the water system. A majority of the spending started taking place from the first Twinning (PH 1) project which started in 2007 and continues into 2014.
