Where Does Our Water Come From?


    College Station pumps water from deep wells located on city-owned land over the Carrizo-Wilcox Aquifer, in the Carrizo, Sparta, and Simsboro Sand formations.  The maximum temperature of the water as pumped from underground is 118 degrees Fahrenheit.  To reduce the temperature, the water is pumped through cooling towers at Sandy Point Pump Station, lowering the temperature to below 90 degrees Fahrenheit.
