Water Filtration

The City of South Haven's Water Filtration Plant is committed to providing the safest possible drinking water to our customers in the City and townships of Casco, Covert and South Haven. This plant supplies water to nearly 3,400 customers located in these areas.

The water comes from Lake Michigan, a surface water source, through an intake pipe located about a mile offshore. The lake water is treated, settled, filtered and disinfected as it goes through the Water Filtration Plant.

Other common sources of drinking water (both tap water and bottled water) include rivers, lakes, streams, ponds, reservoirs, springs, and wells.

At the end of May 2011, the new South Haven Water Filtration Plant began treating and pumping drinking water. The new plant is currently producing approximately 2,000,000 gallons per day.

Proudly serving the communities of South Haven, South Haven Township, Casco Township and Covert Township
