Sample Data Log We are proud to provide our residents with local water.  Our water system is made up of two groundwater wells, much like ones people use in rural areas, only much larger to provide enough water to our customers.  Very little treatment is needed for this type of system.  At the Water Treatment Facility, a filter tank removes iron deposits, chlorine is added to keep the water clean along with fluoride to help our children’s teeth stay strong and prevent cavities.  After this process, the water is pumped to the elevated water tower where it is stored and dispersed throughout the many water mains and service lines to our customers.

Our new water meters use technology to send an abundance of data that help us pinpoint problems with your water consumption.  If you have been contacted by us, notifying you of high consumption, you can request a consumption report (pictured) showing your usage over a specific time period at no cost to you.  We hope that this technology will help everyone and help us protect one of our most precious resources, WATER!

Do you know the type/material of your water service line entering your home? (Copper, galvanized, plastic, lead etc....) If so, please take this short survey below to help us complete our mandatory inventory of service lines within our system.  The EPA (Environmental Protection  Agency) is requiring this inventory from every publicly owned water system in America.  Click Here for Service Line Inventory Survey

O2 DitchWe are also very proud to provide our customers with dependable sewer service.  Our system is aging and is very expensive to maintain and there are several reasons why.  Many years ago a sewage treatment plant was not required by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).  During that time all of the sewers in the area drained to an open ditch located centrally in town named, “Hominy Ditch”.  Once sewage treatment plants became required to protect our local waterways and prevent pollution, the town’s sewers were captured with a main sewer line running alongside Hominy Ditch and transported to the first sewage treatment plant in the 1960’s.  During that time, all storm sewers which capture storm runoff throughout town were also connected to our sewer system, which was a common practice at that time.  After many years,  EPA has since decided that in order to protect our environment, we must separate the two to avoid overflows of untreated sewage to our waterways.  This process is very expensive and hard to do for a small community.  We continue to strive to find ways to separate storm water from our sanitary sewers with minimal financial impact to our customers.

The sewage treatment process is very complex compared to the water treatment process.  If you are interested in learning more about our facility and it’s treatment just contact us at the number below.
