Edmonton will be able to get more water from Adair County

EDMONTON — Edmonton City Council members voted earlier this week  to purchase water from the Adair County Water District; something the city has wanted to do in the past but hasn’t been able to do because Adair County’s water supply wasn’t large enough.

Howard Dickson, superintendent of the city’s department of public works, explained Monday night that Adair County has installed a new, larger water line that will now make supplying Edmonton with water a possibility.

“We did some testing back last month of how we could bring water from Adair County and how far we could bring it in,” he said. “We did it for about three days. To service 400 customers, it’s going to work out really great.”

Adair County has a gravity flow water system, which means the city of Edmonton would not have to install pumps in order to receive the water.
