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.

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.
