BOWIE CITY WATER WHERE DOES IT COME FROM

Did you ever stop to wonder where your water actually comes from

Each time you turn on your faucet you receive in abundance an unlimited source of water that keeps you clean, washes your clothing and keeps you hydrated.  We are so used to simply just expecting this essential liquid to come to us that we often fail to appreciate all of the work and effort it takes to bring us this resource in a healthy and safe form.   As you read this article, you will find that the City of Bowie has a series of 6 wells where water is drawn from in order to serve the community.

The source waters for the Bowie City’s consumption is ground water obtained from these wells in three major underground confined aquifers:

  • Well #1 - Magothy

  •  Wells #2R, #3, #6 - Patapsco

  • Wells #4R and #5 - Patuxent

These aquifers range in depth from approximately 200 feet to 1,160 feet. Confined aquifers such as those used by the City of Bowie afford very good protection from surface contaminants, but are constantly monitored at our water supply to maintain high water quality standards. The Maryland Department of the Environment has performed a Source Water Assessment for theCity of Bowie. The complete Source Water Assessment can be viewed at the Bowie Branch Library and on the City of Bowie website – www.cityofbowie.org.

Each year a new report is issued and can be viewed online by residents who would like to be more informed about their water or who may have special needs and may need this information for health reasons.
