The Greenville Water Authority consists of a five member Board of Directors and employs eleven employees. The GWA maintains a two million gallon per day conventional treatment plant with five storage tanks that hold approximately three million gallons of water. The distribution system consists of 28.26 miles of main line in the Greenville Borough and 12.04 miles in Hempfield Township and West Salem Township. The Authority serves a population of approximately 8,600 consumers through 3,175 service connections.
The Greenville Water Authority obtains raw water from the Shenango River, located within the City of Greenville, Mercer County. The treatment plant was constructed in 1990. Since that time minor chemical feed alterations have occurred due to the regulation changes required by the Environmental Protection Agency and the PA Department of Environmental Protection. The water produced serves the City of Greenville and portions of Hempfield Township and West Salem Township. The treatment plant produces approximately 900,000 gallons of water per day.
The mission of the GMWA is to guarantee a continuous, uninterrupted, reasonably priced supply of quality water to our customers, which assures public health while promoting stability and future development. We want you to know the GMWA works continuously to improve the water treatment process. We are committed to ensuring the production and distribution of high quality water.

some iron deposits may be stirred up during this process. The water may appear cloudy or tinted red
