The water plant was constructed in 1916 with electrical updates in 2004.
The current water tower was erected and several vital shut off valves were installed in 2004 with financial aid from a $500,000 federal grant from the Indiana Office or Community and Rural Affairs (IOCRA). Because the Town experiences over 200 water main leaks the following summer, the Town was awarded another federal grant from IOCRA for $450,000 to replace antiquated water mains in 2006.
