The Orange City water utility draws water from several local aquifers, treats the water, and delivers it to Orange City residents and businesses. The wellfields are located at the Dunlop Pond, along the Floyd River, and southwest of city limits and consist of 12 wells the supply water to the community. The water treatment plant removes iron and manganese, injects fluoride for dental health, and adds chlorine to ensure safe drinking water. The water treatment plant capacity can treat and deliver 3.0 million gallons per day (MGD); the average daily usage of the community is 1.2 MGD. The Iowa Department of Natural Resources requires the city to have strict processes and testing procedures in place to ensure that water is consistently safe for human use and consumption. The water utility shares staff with the wastewater utility and consists of four certified operators.
