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.
