Jamestown's Water Surplus
Every day the BPU provides our 47,000 water customers with more than 5 million gallons of fresh water with a surplus of many millions more. As water supplies are stressed across the world, Jamestown relies on a supply of clean water from two artesian well fields capable of producing 18 million gallons per day in our current service area. The Cassadaga Aquifer has a watershed of 140 square miles, and the Conewango Aquifer with a watershed of 290 square miles. Both are expected to be reliable sources of water for decades to come.
