General System Information

The Town of Apex shares B. Everett Jordan Reservoir, as our water source. The water is treated at our Cary/Apex Water Treatment Facility and reliably delivered through over 320 miles of water mains and 270 miles of sewer mains.

The Town’s water system consists of pipes ranging from 8-inches to 30-inches and three elevated water tanks – the 500,000 gallon Mason Tank, the 1,000,000 gallon Hunter Tank, and the 1,500,000 gallon Tingen Tank.

The Town’s sewer system consists of a collection system of pipes ranging from 8-inches to 36-inches. A total of 32 pump stations throughout Town assist the gravity system to send wastewater to one of two Wastewater Treatment Facilities. The Town of Apex WRF has a capacity to treat 3.6 million gallons per day (MGD). The remainder flows to the Western Wake Regional Wastewater Management Facility, which has a capacity to treat 18 MGD and is shared with the Town of Cary.
