Water and Sewer Services
Water Distribution
The city purchases treated water from Bell County Water Control & Improvement District No. 1. The district pulls water from Lake Belton and processes it at a treatment plant by the lake. Water is transmitted from the plant via waterlines, booster stations, and elevated storage tanks. It is then distributed to the customers. Water Distribution maintains existing water mains throughout the City and respond to non-emergency and emergency water leak repairs.

Drinking Water Quality Report
glassIn compliance with Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) rules and regulations, an annual Drinking Water Quality Report is made available for customers to view. 

Drought Response Stages
The City of Belton is currently not under a drought stage.
The drought response stages were created to promote water conservation. Each stage corresponds to different water shortage conditions. Following the conditions for each stage helps conserve water during times when supply is limited.
Wastewater Collection
Wastewater Collection cleans and maintains the City's wastewater mains and lift stations. They also respond to clogged wastewater mains, emergency overflows, and lift station call-outs.

Wastewater Treatment
The City of Belton, with the City of Temple, funds for the operation of the Temple-Belton Wastewater Treatment Plant. This is accomplished through a contract with the Brazos River Authority.
