Water Department

The Water Department is housed within the City’s Public Works Complex.  The City of Huron established its own water department and built a filtration plant in 1909.  Since then, the original waterworks (1909) was abandoned and a new filtration plant was commissioned in 1957.  The current filtration plant (1957) has been expanded and upgraded multiple times and is a full-service department regularly recognized by the Ohio EPA for quality of operations.

Water Quality Report

Every water tap is billed a minimum (shown in table below). Usage above the minimum is billed at the appropriate rate. The City bills quarterly. The bill is on yellow paper.
