WHERE DOES MY WATER
The City Of Mountain Home water source is Lake Norfork which is located
northeast of Mountain Home in Baxter County, Arkansas and serves as the
primary water supply for the City Of Mountain Home, Arkansas. Norfork Lake is
formed via the Norfork Dam which dams the North Fork River. Norfork Lake
covers 22,000 acres with more than 360 miles of shoreline. There are 19
recreational parks on the lake that provide places for camping, hiking, picnicking,
swimming, boating, and water skiing.
Typical incoming raw water quality follows in the table below. This raw water is
pumped through an intake structure located on Lake Norfork, approximately one-
quarter mile from the water treatment plant.

HOW DO I KNOW MY WATER IS CLEAN
Water samples are routinely collected and tested each day from the lake and
distribution system coming to your home, checking purity and identifying
potential problems (if any). The water delivered to your home complied with, or
did better than, all State and Federal drinking water requirements.
