About The Water Utility
The Municipal Water Utility was formed in 1888. Cedar Falls' water comes from eight ground-water wells drawing from the Silurian-Devonian limestone aquifer. The wells range in depth from 147 to 275 feet. The water from this source is of such high quality that little treatment is needed; only chlorine and fluoride are added at the well sites. CFU's water distribution system includes four towers and 199 miles of water mains.
