About the Water System
Laconia Water Department's (LWD) water system is made up of approximately 100 miles of main line. These lines are constructed of different materials such as cast iron, ductile iron and PVC. These water mains range from 2 inches to 20 inches in size.
This system includes approximately 615 fire hydrants. The fire hydrants are static tested and flushed twice per year. This flushing program helps with water quality and the static testing insures that all fire hydrants are working properly.
Along with the hydrant maintenance program, LWD also has a main gate maintenance program in which we locate and check approximately 1,457 gates for proper operation.
