The Water department is responsible for all water and sewer services within the City and also some areas outside the City. The department operates a state of the art water treatment facility (12 million gallons per day treatment capacity) and sewage treatment facility (4 million gallons per day treatment capacity), ensuring that each meets stringent State of Tennessee and U.S federal standards and guidelines. The department handles maintenance of water and sewer infrastructure as well as customer services.
Tennessee Department of Environment and Conservation (TDEC) and Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) require the City of Sevierville Water Department to test for lead and copper every 3 years. Test sites include 30 locations throughout the water system. The Maximum Contaminant Level (MCL) is 0.015mg/l for lead and 1. mg/l for copper, levels established by the EPA. The pdf Drinking Water Lead-Copper Summary (1.45 MB) shows the levels well below the limits set for both lead and copper.
