Welcome to Richwood Water Department.

We know how important water is to your daily life. It’s somehow involved in everything you do, everything you use and when you need it, you expect it to be there and you expect it to be clean and safe.

Our water treatment plant, located in downtown Richwood next to the JH Meadows Municipal Complex, produces over 1 Million Gallons of water a day and is pulled from the North Fork of the Cherry River and treated to supply our customers in the Richwood, Fenwick, and Holcomb areas with potable drinking water. We also sell water to Fenwick Mountain PSD for distribution to their customers. 


We are working with closely with Region 4 so that we may soon add Hinkle Mountain and Little Laurel through the Hinkle Mountain/Little Laurel Project
