With a diverse blend of residential, agricultural, commercial and industrial customers, Butler Water works diligently to serve over 5,000 water customers with an average of 750,000 gallons of water each day. Butler Water maintains over 520 miles of pipeline, 16 pumping stations and 15 tanks throughout a 440-square-mile area.

Butler Water draws its water from the Green River, a surface water source that flows through Butler County. In our Morgantown water treatment plant, we purify the water, and test the purity an average of 1,000,000 times a year.

Butler Water leadership works closely with the economic development community to keep pace with changing needs. This includes identifying growth projections and industry needs, brainstorming ways to meet those needs, and ensuring adequate and reliable water services.

We regularly compare system capacities to existing and projected customer usage to determine where improvements are needed. The challenge is not only to plan for these improvements, but also find the most economical funding sources in order to keep rates as low as possible for our customers.


Butler Water began serving its community by developing the pipe network, pumps and facilities needed to bring crucial water services to remote and undeveloped locations throughout Butler County. Service began by drawing water from a combination of small wells and intakes and, in the early 1990s, was enhanced when Butler Water constructed its own water treatment plant.

The progressive thinking of original Butler Water leaders continues with an ongoing commitment to ensuring that critical services are available to all those who need them in Butler County.
