Water Sources

The City of Milford has 4 well facilities consisting of 11 wells. Our water source is groundwater. Wells draw from the Frederica, Federalsburg, Columbia, and Milford aquifers, drawing approximately 2.5 million gallons of water a day.

Purification & Quality

Water is treated with chlorine and fluoride, which is checked daily as the state requires. Reports are also sent in monthly and a total is sent in annually as well.Water quality reports are completed once a year and sent to each business and resident.

Water Issues

Crews are on call 24 hours a day for water leaks from residential services or water main breaks. After hours, the Police Department can contact on-call personnel.

Note: Brown water will sometimes occur. To alleviate this issue, run an outside spigot for a few minutes until the water runs clear again.
