We have come a long way since our humble beginning in
1968 with approximately 900 customers. Today we maintain water mains
in excess of 600 miles, water connections over 15,500 and a
population served of over 45,000. We continue to grow, with no drop
forecasted. On an average, we produce over a billion gallons of
water per year. To maintain this large system, we have a staff of 50
employees with our own maintenance, repair, and construction crews,
along with customer service personnel and treatment plant personnel.
As we experience this growth, we are pursuing
additional infrastructure reinforcements that will help ensure the
reliability of existing water mains and facilities. Some of the
major projects that we are currently undertaking are: the
continuation of a 24" water main that will loop around the
Districtís existing water system, wastewater study and several water
line extensions throughout the county.
District is currently working on our County Extension Plan for
serving the remainder of Hardin County. Phase One, Two and Three are
completed and in service. The financial information and a
scope of work for Phase Four project is being complied with
construction to start in 2007. For more in depth coverage

The District has realized the
need for wastewater collection in areas of the county for sometime.
We are currently involved in a study to determine needs and
facilities to achieve this ambitious goal. For more information
