PINE HILLS MUTUAL WATER COMPANY
The Pine Hills Mutual Water Co. was founded in 1915 as part of the Pine Hills Subdivision. Over the years there have been many changes. The most significant changes have been accomplished in the last eight years. Within the period we have improved water quality by improving system circulation, improving system controls and adding a treatment system that removes the Iron Oxide and Manganese that occurs naturally in mountain water. Our water is called ground water. It is pumped out of the ground from five wells. We know how important healthy water is and we strive to maintain our water at the highest possible level.
Pine Hills Mutual Water Co. is a shareholder owned company. If you own property within the Pine Hills Subdivision, you are an owner/shareholder of the company. There are rules and regulations that govern shareholder responsibilities. Please see “Rules and Regulations” for these topics.
TREATMENT SYSTEM BUILDING
The treatment system building was completed in 2012.
The treatment system removes over 90% of the iron and manganese and recovers almost 90% of the treated water. See “ Water System Description” additional details
Committed to helping our customers with good water and service
OUR WATER IS PUMPED OUT OF FIVE WELLS LOCATED NEAR YMCA CAMP MARSTON.
THE WATER IS PASSED THROUGH A IRON/MANGANESE FILTER BEFORE BEING COLLECTED IN A TEMPORARY STAORAGE TANK CALLED A CLEARWELL. THE WATER IS THEN PUMPED UP TO THE TOP OF PINE HILL TO A PAIR OF STORAGE TANKS. FROM THERE THE WATER IS DISTRIBUTED BY GRAVITY TO ALL THE HOMES WITHIN THE SERVICE DISTRICT. THOSE HOMES NEAR THE TANKS ARE AT THE SAME ELEVATION SO THE WATER PRESSURE FOR THOSE HOMES IS AT A MINIMUM. APPROX. 15psi. IF YOUR HOME DOES NOT HAVE A BOOSTER PUMP, IT IS STRONGLY RECOMMENDED THAT ONE BE INSTALLED.
