Sheridan Water Supply and Treatment Division Mission: Protecting Public Health and Preserving our Resources Through Sound Management Practices – The Sheridan Water Treatment Division’s mission is to protect public health and the environment for our community by providing high-quality water in an effective, efficient, and responsible manner. We endeavor to exceed our citizens’ expectations and regulatory standards for quality drinking water, and to ensure an excess quantity for fire, domestic, and commercial use.
The Water Supply and Treatment division is charged with ensuring that quality drinking water is available to Sheridan citizens at all times, while at the same time maximizing the use of our most valuable resource – water – through conservation. In order to carry out this mission, the Water Treatment Subdivision operates both the Sheridan and Big Goose Water Treatment Plants, the Intake Facility, and the water supply sources. The treatment plants draw water from Big Goose Creek and supplement supply from the Twin Lakes Reservoir during peak use times.
