Bulk Water Filling Station

The City of Manhattan’s Bulk Water Filling Station, which is located at 244 Levee Drive enables customers to conveniently purchase water for the purpose of filling water-hauling trucks or tanks. This service was formerly available at the Water Treatment Plant (WTP). 

We hope customers will enjoy the increased convenience of the new automated Filling Station.  At this time, customers must set up an account at the WTP or online in order to have access to the Bulk Water Filling Station.
