Treatment is done at the Wichita Water Treatment Plant. The Benton Water Department's primary focus is customer care. We are continually working to improve the water system to insure that current and future water resources are protected. We strive to respond to customer needs with courteous, friendly, timely service. We monitor daily to assure that the City's water is safe and in compliance with all standards. The services we provide include pumping water, maintaining the water transmission and distribution system, maintaining the service connections (meters), managing facilities, planning for the future, all with a commitment to regard proper use of financial resources.
