Where does my drinking water come from?

Your drinking water in Lebanon comes from a network of seven deep wells located around the city. These wells draw water from porous rock formations, ranging in depth from 1,000 to 1,800 feet.

To ensure a steady supply, we have five elevated storage tanks that can hold a total of 3 million gallons of water. This water is then distributed throughout the city via mains that range from 4 to 12 inches in diameter.

This system provides water for all your needs – from household and business use to industrial applications and fire protection.
