The Hendersonville Utility District was established in 1948 to provide unparalleled
water and wastewater services to the growing Hendersonville area. Originally serving just a few hundred customers, the Utility District today provides professional, efficient and high quality water and wastewater service to more than 14,000 homes and businesses throughout the greater Hendersonville area.

Customer service is the number one priority of the Hendersonville Utility District. Our dedicated team of employees strives to provide each of our customers with the best potable water and sanitary sewer services, keeping the public’s safety first and foremost in our minds.

Water Service
The water delivered to our customers comes from Old Hickory Lake, a source known for the purity of its “raw” water – or the water directly from the lake before treatment. A raw water intake located near Rockland Park collects water directly from the lake’s main channel source, the Cumberland River, and directs the water through a series of carefully monitored treatment and disinfection steps at Utility District’s water treatment plant. Built in 1983, the plant was designed with the vision of providing clean potable water for many decades with a treatment capacity of eight million gallons of water each day (8MGD).  Currently, the plant provides four millions gallons per day, enabling the district to readily meet Hendersonville’s growing residential and business areas for years to come.

Wastewater Service
Wastewater services are provided through a carefully-managed network of Hendersonville Utility District-maintained collection systems that collect and then transfer wastewater directly to Metro Nashville’s wastewater treatment facilities. This cooperative arrangement between our two agencies provides Hendersonville customers with the benefits of efficient operational management of facilities in Hendersonville, without the unnecessary duplication of wastewater treatment services.  The Hendersonville Utility District’s Board of Commissioners is committed to such cooperative arrangements where they benefit our customers and the region.  

This philosophy is being reflected in the Board’s approach to urban growth management, with the Utility District, Goodlettsville, Millersville, Ridgetop, and the White House Utility District now working cooperatively on issues of watershed management.
