Municipal Facility

The Willson treatment plant supplies water to the city of Hagerstown, Md. It withdraws water from the Potomac near the C&O Canal and then pumps the purified water to the city. The Willson plant is capable of producing 20 million gallons per day (mgd) and provides drinking water to the cities of Hagerstown, Williamsport, Smithsburg, and surrounding areas, serving more than 89,000 customers daily.

Normal water withdrawals average 11 mgd, with the peak demand of water averaging 13 mgd. The highest water demand is typically during the summer months. The Wilson Water Plant pumps over 4 billion gallons of water a year. The production department also services and maintains five tanks and four pump stations throughout the city and county.
