Water in the Trinity Aquifer is typically located between 50 ft to 3000 ft below the surface. The City of Bellmead pumps water from around the 1000ft mark plus/minus, which is around 120 degrees Fahrenheit when it enters our reservoirs.
As a courtesy to our customers, we use evaporative cooling towers to reduce the water temperature and deliver it at a more acceptable temperature. Sometimes we can reduce the temperature as much as 30 degrees in ideal conditions but humidity and air temperature can drastically affect the cooling efficiency. In the summer months, our customers may experience cold faucet temperatures ranging from 85 to 95 degrees.
