Just ask your question. I assume you are talking about municipal water, not your own well (I have both).
Municipal water gets pumped out of the ground somewhere, or comes from a lake or river. It gets processed, meaning it's filtered, and any chemicals like chlorine are added. This all gets done at one or more locations which may or may not be within the actual service area. Then it gets pumped through pipes to water towers throughout the service area. From there it's gravity fed to the end destination.
All that pumping uses large pumps and lots pf electricity. It can be more than half the total county/city electric bill.1
