The Water Department manages the maintenance and repair of the water production, transfer, and distribution facilities.
Why is water so important?
Our bodies don’t work without it. Our crops don’t grow. Our gardens don’t bloom. Our fish don’t swim. Our pets don't thrive. Our industries and communities can’t grow and expand. In fact, just about everything we do in our daily lives -- directly or indirectly-- depends upon water.
The earth is largely covered by water. But the truth is; only about 2% of that water is drinkable. With a constantly growing population, that small amount of water is being shared by more and more people. In addition to the water used for human consumption, our water resources are also used for, irrigation, agriculture, manufacturing, and power generation.
We cannot afford to take our precious water supplies for granted. Water -- quantity and quality -- is quickly becoming a global issue. That's why we have to learn to be better stewards of this finite resource and learn to make informed decisions about how we use it.
What Celina is doing to help conserve.
In order to conserve the available water supply and protect the integrity of water supply facilities, with particular regard for domestic water use, sanitation, fire protection, and the public health and safety, the city of Celina actively encourages responsible water use. To that end, Celina water offers various resources on water conservation to the public.
In addition to our own local water conservation program, the city has partnered with Upper Trinity Regional Water District (UTRWD) to promote watershed protection and further our water conservation efforts.
