The Water Division operates and manages four water districts within the Town, which serve 2,340 households through public water supply systems. The Cedar Downs Water District in the Stanwood section of Bedford serves 66 homes, the Farms Water District in The Farms section of Bedford Village serves 83 homes, the Old Post Road Water District serves 54 homes and businesses, and the Consolidated Water District distributes water to 2,137 homes and businesses in the Katonah and Bedford Hills areas. The remainder of Town residents rely on private wells for their water, which are not operated or maintained by the Town.
The department diligently monitors the public water supply for quality. In addition, they read water meters, repair and replace fire hydrants, and repair water main breaks.
Water Pressure Problem
Contact the water department if there are any questions regarding water pressure problems — both too high or too low — or if you are about to undertake major construction to determine the location of water lines.
Water Bills and Payments
Water bills are rendered quarterly and meter usage provides major revenue to the district. In addition, there is a Water District tax levied on properties within the various districts.

To Pay In Person: If time does not permit mailing your payment or you prefer to pay your bill in person, you may make a payment at Water Department office.
Consolidated Water District customers can turn on their taps and 100% of their water will be from the new water filtration plant. All of the Department of Health required testing and evaluation was completed successfully. The filtration plant will be the only active source of supply, although our old wells will be used as a backup source during emergencies.
The quality and taste of the water will be one of the best available anywhere. With the water being softer, there no longer should be the need for water softening systems.
