Do you know where your water comes from?

Tonopah’s drinking water has to be pumped over fifteen miles from the Ralston Valley. The water comes from shallow wells in the Ralston Valley that are fed primarily through precipitation. Getting water to Tonopah is expensive and difficult. Water from the well field has to be pumped almost 500 feet over the San Antonio Mountains.

Electricity costs for pumping water to Tonopah is astonishing. We currently have over 25 miles of primary pipeline to supply the Town of Tonopah and the Tonopah Airport, and over 100 miles of distribution pipeline to supply homes and businesses that require continuous maintenance and upgrades.

Multiple storage tanks are required; they are critical to maintaining sufficient water pressure to service homes and businesses, and for fire suppression. Efforts have been undertaken to find another viable water source for Tonopah for over one hundred years – with no success! So please help protect and conserve Nevada’s most precious resource.

Contact our office immediately to report leaks, breaks, change in water pressure or change in taste, smell or color of the water. We strive to provide you with the best quality of water for years to come!
