Water Maintenance

The City of Marshfield Public Water System was established in 1925, and consisted of a 75,000 gallon elevated storage tank, a 100,000 gallon concrete storage reservoir, a booster pump system and water mains to serve the distribution system. Today it consists of 3 wells drilled to a minimum depth of 1,300 feet deep, 3 elevated storage tanks capable of storing a total of 800,000 gallons of water, a booster pump station, and approximately 66 miles of water mains of various types and sizes.

The City of Marshfield currently pumps approximately 500,000 gallons of water during the fall and winter and up to 1,400,000 gallons of water during the spring and summer. Each well is capable of pumping 650-800 gallons per minute. Fire protection is provided throughout the city with 403 different fire hydrants.

There are approximately 3,000 services that receive water from the city of Marshfield. Our water meters are read electronically through a radio read system, which improves accuracy and efficiency. Meter readings previously were read manually requiring multiple employees and two weeks to complete. The entire system can now be read by one person in approximately 16 hours.

Recently, the City of Marshfield passed a 10 million dollar bond to help with future water and sewer projects. In the next few years, the City is proposing to re-plumb and re-pipe our current elevated storage tanks. Additionally, we are working with an engineering firm to help with adding more storage for water supply and to implement the disinfection process.

In 2014, the City of Marshfield completed a water line bore across Interstate 44. This project was important for the growth of the city and is currently providing water for new businesses. This water line bore will be looped with another project that land owners along McNabb road have completed, which will provide water access to approximately 80 acres of development land, and commercial businesses.

The City of Marshfield is working hard to continue to provide safe drinking water and fire protection to the citizens.

Questions or service related questions can be answered by calling 417-468-2310.
