Water and Wastewater Department

Farmington Water Department

The Farmington Water Department is proud to supply over 3,300 people with high quality drinking water that meets or exceeds all current State of New Hampshire and Federal standards. The Town currently uses three gravel-packed wells to supply 250,000 to 300,000 gallons of water per day via two pump stations, which pump water to two water storage tanks with a total capacity of 1.75 million gallons. The current water rate is $2.78 per 100 cubic feet, or less than $0.004 per gallon.

Farmington Wastewater Department

In 2012 the Town of Farmington completed an upgrade of its wastewater treatment facility (WWTF), replacing the vastly undersized Oxidation Ditches with a new, state-of-the-art Sequencing Batch Reactor (SBR) treatment facility. The new SBRs are capable of handling all current wastewater flow and have the capacity to accept additional flow as Farmington grows over the coming decades. Also as part of the WWTF upgrades, Rapid Infiltration Basins (RIBs) were constructed to allow treated wastewater to be discharged back into the groundwater, instead of directly into the Cocheco River. The current sewer rate is $7.19 per 100 cubic feet of water used, or $0.0096 per gallon.
