Where does my water come from?
The City's water supply system consists of three sources: the Dungeness River Infiltration Gallery, the Silberhorn Wellfield, and the Port Williams Well field. Prior to construction of the Infiltration Gallery, the City diverted water directly out of the Dungeness River. In 1953 the City was authorized to withdraw water from the infiltration gallery, and in 1954 a second surface-water diversion was authorized to convey water from the river to the infiltration gallery. Groundwater withdrawals from the Silberhorn Well field were authorized in 1975, and pumping from the Port Williams well field was authorized in 1996.
