Welcome to the Falmouth Water System. Our water is derived from several sources:
  • Long Pond surface water source. Primary source since the 1890's that provides over 50% of Town's water.
  • Coonamessett Well, Fresh Pond Well, Mares Pond Well; these three wells produce 2.1 million gallons per day of groundwater.
  • Regional Water Supply: we receive up to 1.0 MGD from the MMR supply wells.

All sources are treated to provide disinfection and pH adjustment. Water is then delivered to you through our transmission and storage system comprised of 370 miles of water main and 4 water storage tanks.

Preserving the quality of our source water and guarding against contamination are of prime importance. A state-of-the-art water filtration plant is being constructed for our newest source, the Crooked Pond Well. This facility will provide advanced water purification for 2.5 million gallons of water per day. Similar facilities are planned for existing and future water supply sources in order to provide you with the absolute best quality water possible.
