The Ipswich Water Department was created in 1894. The original water system was limited to the downtown area and was established primarily for fire protection. The system has expanded significantly since its inception.  It consists of two divisions, Treatment and Distribution, which provides drinking water and fire protection to approximately 98% of the population.
