Residents of Clark County obtain drinking water through public or private water systems.

  • Private water systems (i.e., individual wells) supply drinking water to 24% of Clark County residents which is about 31,000 systems servicing 93,000 people.
  • The majority of residents (75%) are served by large public water systems which include the large municipal systems. The vast majority of our water in Clark County comes from four underground aquifers, which are tapped by wells.

The City of Camas sources water from both surface and groundwater. In addition to 8 wells, water is drawn from Boulder and Jones Creeks. In addition, the City of Battle Ground, the City of Ridgefield, and the City of Washougal each provide water services for those communities and Clark Public Utilities provides public water services throughout most other areas of the community.
