WATER DEPARTMENT

The City of Milford Water Department has been providing safe drinking water to its customers since 1936. The City provides water for its 6,000+ customers from our ground water treatment plant inside the city limits, drawn from four aquifers situated along the Little Miami River and each is rated to produce 550 gallons per minute (gpm).  The water is pumped to our treatment plant where it is softened, aerated, and filtered. The final step in the treatment process is the addition of fluoride and chlorine to disinfect.  The water is then pumped from our treatment plant to our two elevated storage tanks which have a combined storage of 795,000 gallons.

Milford finished water has the following characteristics at the customer’s tap.

  • Hardness: 140mg/l (milligrams per liter) or 8 gpg (grains per gallon)
  • pH: 8.8 – 9.2
  • Fluoride: 0.8 – 1.0 mg/l
  • Chlorine: 0.5 – 1.0 mg/l

Milford’s average plant production is 735,000 gallons per day (gpd). This production varies depending on the season and weather conditions.
