Mission Statement: To provide our customers dependable, cost effective, high-quality services in the areas of water and sewer; build a strong, positive public image; and create and promote a safe, productive work force and work environment by efficiently using all financial, human and material resources.
The Water and Sewer department manages, operates and maintains the City’s water and wastewater systems. Tulsa’s drinking water comes from two sources: Lakes Spavinaw and Eucha on Spavinaw Creek and Lake Oologah on the Verdigris River. Lakes Spavinaw and Eucha are owned and operated by the City. Lake Oologah is operated by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. A third emergency source of water is available from Lake Hudson on Grand River. Water is treated at two treatment plants: Mohawk and A.B. Jewell. Collected wastewater is treated at four treatment plants: Southside, Northside, Haikey Creek and Lower Bird Creek.
The Special Briefing Document and the Executive Summary for the Comprehensive Assessment of the Water and Wastewater System are now available online.
