The City of Taylorville has been providing treated drinking water to its residents since 1888. At this time Taylorville operates a 4 million gallon per day treatment facility that provides water to nearly 18,000 residents in Taylorville and its surrounding communities.

Taylorville is a lime softening/clarification and filtration facility which utilizes both surface water from Lake Taylorville and well water from the Macon-Christian strip aquifer for its raw sources.
