"I suspect they received a lot of ,supplements, with that system," says Susan Sorrells
."Like bugs and who knows what else!"Some time in the 1960's an underground system was installed.The water it carried was consumed by local residents with no complaints for many years, but later clean water standards indicated that some mineral levels in the water were too high.
In 1984 Susan
approached the Safe Drinking Water Loan Land Program and secured a loan to make improvements to the existing water system, now deteriorating and perforated with tree roots.
The water is now purified through a reverse osmosis system and is equal in quality to any bottled water, Susan
says.Another great benefit to the new system is that it filters out the corrosive salts found in all local water that clog up swamp coolers and other household water appliances.
Because of its state of the art design, Susan
adds, it's also one of the very few small town systems that doesn't require chlorination.
"We'll definitely miss Maria around here," says Susan Sorrells
