Our Water Utilities Department is made up of 39 full time employees who are dedicated to provide the residents of Bentonville with professional and prompt service. Our water system has a 1 million gallon elevated storage tank located on Water Tower Road, a 2 million gallon elevated storage tank on Northwest 12th street and 2 ground storage tanks of 3 million gallons and 6 million gallons located on Walton Boulevard. These storage facilities allow Bentonville to have appropriate water storage for peak demand and to supply adequate pressure.
Our Sewer Collection system is made up of sewer main lines and manholes.
