They also participate in seal coating operations.

The water subdivision employs a staff of 3 full-time employees who work under the supervision of a Public Works Superintendent. The Superintendent may utilize staff from the utilities subdivision as well when needed for operations and maintenance.

One summer employee is used for gopher-one locates and 1 is used for grounds maintenance for the water treatment facility and water storage facility.
