Utilities

When a business looks to expand or locate in a new city or region, it considers everything from the tax rates to the quality of life. One key part of the decision lies with the availability of utilities. This includes; water, wastewater, irrigation, power, natural gas, and broadband.

Making wise utility planning decisions has positioned the City of Nampa to be a major competitor in economic development. Nampa owns and operates its own municipal water and wastewater facilities. Nampa's Wastewater Division operates and maintains Nampa's sanitary sewer system, and Nampa's Waterworks Division provides a safe, clean supply of potable water and an abundant supply of irrigation water.
