Water Services

Carthage Water & Electric Plant (CWEP) Water Treatment Plant produces on average 2.5 million gallons of water each day. To deliver the water to our 5,000 plus customers, we maintain over 100 miles of water distribution lines. This clean, fresh water is constantly monitored and treated to ensure that the Carthage community is served with the highest level of quality water possible.

Our source of water comes from a series of 14 deep water wells located throughout the city of Carthage. With the completion of two new water towers in 1999, we now have 4 towers to meet the needs of our growing city. All of these facilities combine to provide the city of Carthage with a storage capacity of 7,500,000 gallons of water.
