About Our Water
Overview
The City of Ellinwood Water Department is in charge of developing and protecting the City's water resources.  The City has two water towers, one with a 50,000 gallon capacity and the other with a 300,000 gallon capacity.  The City's water system consists of 6 water wells.  The water wells are tested on an annual basis.  The public water supply is tested on a monthly basis.  Two random water samples are taken from any given point in the water system, and the samples are sent to the Kansas Department of Health and Environment to test for coliform bacteria. For more data on the quality of Ellinwood water you can read the annual water quality report.  The report is mailed to all Ellinwood residents during the spring of each year.     

The City periodically flushes water hydrants and this may cause black particles to be present in your water.  If this happens, please let your water run until the black particles disappear.  This problem may also occur during a water main break or if there is water line work being done in your area.
