About the Water Program
The city is a regional purveyor of water providing water of naturally high quality to retail and wholesale customers from its 9 deep-production wells in a forested watershed.
The water system also serves 2 wholesale accounts, which are the Birch Bay Water and Sewer District and the Bell Bay Jackson Water Association. Each year Blaine’s wells produce about 550 million gallons of water.
The water program is responsible for operation, maintenance, and repair of approximately 86 miles of water main in the city and outside the city limits. We install and repair water meters for over 2,500 customers, as well as maintain city pump stations, storage reservoirs, fire hydrants.
