Water and Sewer Department

The main objective of the Livingston Water Department is to provide the citizens of Livingston with clean, safe water.  The Water crew works hard maintaining the water lines, checking the wells, collecting samples and performing various tests to assure that this objective is met.

The City water is provided by wells. It is tested monthly to meet State Water Quality Standards. The present water supply for Livingston consists of six wells located throughout the city. Three reservoirs store all of the city's water.  Total capacity of these reservoirs is 3,090,000 gallons.  The City of Livingston provides water and sewer services inside and outside the city limits. It must be noted, however, that most of the water in the county area comes from private wells, and sewage is almost all septic.

The Sewer Department also provides an essential service for the comfort and well being of the citizens of Livingston.  The sewer crew works hard in all kinds of weather to keep the sewer main lines running clear and free of blockages.  The sewer crew is also responsible for maintaining the storm drains.


If you experience a sewer back-up, please call the Livingston Public Works Department first so that the sewer crew may check the main line. You will then be informed of the appropriate next step.

We are asking that if there is a concern that this issue could have occurred to contact our office immediately and we will respond to flush the main. This service is available 24 hours a day and free of charge and it ensures that the main will not backup.

A resident may request the Livingston Utility Department to shut the water off to a house at the curb stop. There is a charge of $10 for shut off and $10 to turn the water back on.  This will stop the monthly water and sewer charge.
