Carlyle Water Department

The Kaskaskia River and Carlyle Lake serve as sources of Carlyle’s water supply. A new water treatment plant was completed in 1996 which will supply the water needs of Carlyle residents, commerce, and industry, in addition to several surrounding water districts, well into the Twenty-First Century. In addition to Carlyle residents, our water plant serves approximately 8,500 additional users in surrounding community, bringing our total customer base to approximately 12,000. City 014

Storage capacity at the City water plant is presently two million gallons (2MGD). The City is currently undertaking a plan that will allow the plant to produce three million gallons per day (3MGD). The state-of-the-art water treatment plant can easily be expanded to meet the needs of any large volume users who may locate in Carlyle. As of October 2005, the City has entered into a loan with the Illinois Environmental Protection Agency to construct an additional filtration system that will further enhance the ability of the water plant to filter particulates from Carlyle’s potable water.
