Water Supply


In 2013 over 6 million dollars was invested in the Oakland City Water System.  A new water plant was built and a 10″ water line was looped around the City, cutting the City’s water loss by 30%. The Old Lake provides water for the citizens of Oakland City and the alternate supply is the New Lake.

The Oakland City Water Department also purchases water from Patoka Lake.
