Jersey County Rural Water Company was established in 1972 by area farmers and businessmen looking for a dependable source of water. Countless public meetings held in different locations throughout Jersey County proved the great need for potable drinking water, so a steering committee was appointed to help organize efforts to bring water to rural communities.
Funding for the system was received through a 40 year 5% loan from the Farmer’s Home Association. The initial loan was $2.5 million for 200 miles of pipeline supporting 1,200 customers.
