Odessa Utilities Department
The Odessa Water, through Odessa Utilities Department, provides water for about 97,802 residents living in the Odessa area. Established in 1881, the Odessa Water purchases all of its water, untreated, from the Colorado River Municipal Water District (CRMWD). The majority of the water is surface water from Lake Ivie (Runnels County), Lake Thomas (Scurry County), and Lake Spence (Coke County). Groundwater or well water from Ward and Martin Counties wells are also pumped to meet the water system demands.
