Water Supply

A dependable water supply is critical for economic productivity. The upper Midwest of the United States (including the Great Lakes) contains between 18% and 21% of all the fresh surface water on earth! One of the largest aquifers in the United States runs approximately 20 miles North of Troy, Ohio directly under Dayton, Ohio. With aquifers yielding more than 13,900 gallons per minute, the region excels in the ability to obtain high quality water and in the quantity needed.

During times when many areas across the nation are struggling with drought conditions, Troy is drought-free and welcomes water intensive business and industry to share its abundant water resources. This amenity proves to be a valuable resource to the sustainability and growth of agriculture, industrial production, energy generation, and service sector activities.
