Q: Where does your drinking water come from?
A: Dayton’s hidden treasure -- The Great Miami Buried Valley Aquifer.

This 1.5 trillion-gallon aquifer stretches across 13 counties in the Dayton region, providing clean water to Dayton, Montgomery County and beyond. This impressive aquifer was formed by the movement of glaciers and is made of sand and gravel deposits that are saturated with water.
