Water Treatment

Alliance City Council voted on February 20, 1990, unanimously to authorize a water distribution study and an engineering design for a new 10 million gallon a day water treatment plant.

The City of Alliance draws surface water from the lower of two contiguous reservoirs, Walborn and Deer Creek, with a total available capacity of 2.9 billion gallons.

Our employees work around the clock, seven days a week, 365 days a year, to ensure that your drinking water is safe to use and consume.

Deer Creek Improvement Project

Stark Parks is upgrading the boat ramp and parking lot at Deer Creek Park. Stark Parks has been working closely with the City of Alliance to lower the water level for the duration of the ramp concrete pouring. The lower water level causes higher manganese levels in the raw water going to the treatment plant. This does not affect the safety of your drinking water. High levels of manganese can cause coloration of the water and negatively affect laundry. We do not expect this to be a problem, however as a precaution we will be monitoring the manganese levels very closely. We expect to be at the lower reservoir levels for about a month (tentatively, October 24th to November 24th). During this time we will post the current manganese levels below.
