Savanna Water & Sewer

The City of Savanna owns and operates its own municipal water utility consisting of four wells, two elevated water storage tanks, a water reservoir and water distribution system. Well No. 3 has a capacity of 350 gallons per minute; Well No. 4 has a capacity of 500 gallons per minute; Well No. 5 has a capacity of 550 gallons per minute; and Well No. 6 has a capacity of 1200 gallons per minute.

Water is pumped directly into the distribution system with a 250,000 gallon elevated storage tank and a 550,000 gallon reservoir acting as an equalizer. Water is pumped from the distribution system by a booster pump located on North Fourth Street to a 50,000 gallon elevated tank to serve the high ground in the north east sector of the City.

The distribution system is composed of 4", 6", 8", 10" and 12" diameter water mains. Water is treated by the addition of chlorine, fluorides and polyphosphates, in accordance with Illinois Environmental Protection Agency standards.

The water distribution system serves approximately 1350 residential users, 200 commercial users and 45 industrial users. All users are metered. To facilitate meter reading and rendering of service bills, the city has been divided into commercial and residential zones. Service bills are issued quarterly on a staggered basis.
