Village water service began in 1953 with construction of a
plant, wells, water lines, and a orange stand pipe. The
village water is supplied by 3 welll fields situated south of town
at 6010 Amanda Southern Rd.
In 2008 the village built a new computer operated water plant
that moved us into the 21st century. 2015 will mark another
change, the village will begin construction to replace the existing
stand pipe. A new cobalt blue glass composite
water tower will be erected.

covers the cost of loan debt for constructing
