Number ONE-Security and Safety:
The Elma Water Department has made additional heightened security improvements to our complete water system. Security and public safety are number one with us. To help us if you see anything that just “doesn’t look right” to you, please call us or call 911 to report it. Please note that water department personnel or the fire departments of Elma can only use fire hydrants.

What is the Elma Water Department?:
The Elma Water Department is a special district in the Town of Elma, which was formed in 1964 to distribute potable water to its residents. Elma purchases 100% of its water from Erie County Water Authority. We do not add any chemicals to the water, but we do test for purity and quality on a regular scheduled basis. Our objective and goal are to give our water customers good quality water, available water for fire protection, maintain our distribution system, and good service to our customers and residence of the Town of Elma at the best possible price. Our devoted crew and staff are on call 24 hours a day, seven days a week, 52 weeks a year if there is an emergency such as a break.

Help us Out:

  1. If you see anything that looks out of the ordinary or “just not right” call us immediately.
  2. Please have your house number posted on your house and mailbox for our service personnel
  3. Cut the grass and remove the snow around the fire hydrants so they can easily be seen in case of an emergency.
  4. Separate you meter reading cards before sending back the half with your reading on it and send as soon as possible.
