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
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.
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 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.
