City Drinking Water Source Information and Facts
The City of Chadron has three options for supplying its residents with clean drinking water. The city utilizes ground water, surface water from Chadron Creek, and water originating from an infiltration gallery. The city is fortunate that the ground water is clean with low nitrates, but has the challenge of moving this water roughly 18 miles from their well field to town. Since their public supply wells are located outside city jurisdiction, city officals questioned what authority they had to protect their system and drinking water.

If you would like to test your private well, Nebraska Association of Resource Districts offers free water testing. For more information please visit the NRD Web site.
