BWL Water Overview
The BWL serves more than 56,000 residential, business and industrial water customers. We own more than 800 miles of underground water mains throughout the greater Lansing area. We treat and distribute our water, drawn from the Saginaw Aquifer – a groundwater supply that has been called one of the finest natural sources of groundwater in the United States – from two water distribution facilities, the John F. Dye Water Conditioning Plant and the Wise Road Conditioning Plant.
Award-Winning Water Safety
In December 2016, the BWL removed its last active lead service line, joining Madison, Wisconsin, as the second water utility in the nation to remove all lead service lines. The project began in 2004 and removed 12,150 active lines at a cost of $44.5 million.
Learn more about our award-winning water, and how we treat and distribute it to our customers in our Water Resource Center.
