Water Treatment Division

Water Production Process

Bartlett’s water is extracted from an underground aquifer known as the Memphis Sands.

Water Quality

The primary goal of the Water Production Division is to provide a continuous supply of safe, potable drinking water. This means:
  • Safe: free of contaminants which can cause disease or be toxic
  • Palatable: free of unpleasant characteristics


The Water Plant Division also manages/coordinates all water analysis programs and responds to citizen complaints regarding water quality.

The drinking water supplied by the City is safe, meeting or exceeding all quality standards set by both the State and Federal governments.
