water service

The Bolivar Utility Department is responsible for delivering safe and reliable drinking water to over 2,800 customers in and around Bolivar. We have four deep wells, approximately 615 feet deep that can supply 1.2 million gallons of drinking water per day. Sodium hypochlorite (bleach), lime, and fluoride are added to treat the water. We also supply all of Spring Creek Utility District’s customers with water from our plant.


We are regulated by the State of Tennessee Department of Environment and Conservation. All regulated water tests that are required annually are on file with the department.  This information  is available at any time.


The results of the tests are also printed in the local paper once a year, usually in June. To obtain a copy of this information, call our main office at (731) 658-5894 or call  Bobby Hensley, Chief Water Plant Operator at (731) 658- 2553.
