The Stoney Creek Reservoir is fed by numerous granite mountain springs sourced mostly from National Park Service land resulting in a very palatable and clean water supply. The water is categorized as being “soft," having relatively low mineral content, an excellent supply for industrial water handling equipment such as boilers, and permitting more effective use of cleaning protocols. The water supplied from the Reservoir enters Town from the north side on a dedicated supply line.
