Village of Bellville Water Source:
The Village of Bellville presently operates two 12" wells that are approximately 92' deep. They are capable of producing about 1,000,000 gallons of water a day. Water is then pumped into three storage tanks, their combined storage capacity equal to 544,000 gallons. The average daily use for Bellville is 195,000 gallons of water per day.

The EPA requires regular sampling to ensure drinking water safety. The village conducts sampling on hundreds of contaminates and none were found to be above their requirements.
