Default Methods for cooling incoming city water supply?

This is something that is an issue here in Crematoria (Texas) for about 3 months out of the year. Our incoming city water is quite warm for those months. It will generally be somewhere between 80-85* most of that time because the ground gets so hot and the water gains allot of heat at the water plant before going into a large metal tank which also absorbs heat and it doesn't get below 80* at night...

So does anyone have any bright ideas of reasonable ways to lower the incoming water temp?

FYI we are on the old small 2" water main that was put in back in 1961. The new house next door is on the new plastic watermain that is a direct line to the treatment plant and their water temp is nearly 90*. Ours is 86*.
