Ragland Water Works Board services the greater Ragland, Alabama area to provide quality water products. Ragland is located in Northeast St. Clair County, Alabama. This community was named for the owner of the Sims and Ragland Mining Company.
The Ragland Water Works Board was first formed in 1941 to ensure a safe, dependable source of water to every home in the area. As of the end of 2010, we were serving approximately 1098 homes and businesses. Our system is governed by a Board of Directors, which consists of two elected town officials and a resident. The Board Members are:
- Carlton Byers - Chairman
- Richard Bunt - Board Member
- Tony Soles - Board Member
If you have any questions or concerns about your water utility, please contact Tim McKenney, Superintendent, at 205.472.0409 or email at firstname.lastname@example.org. We want our valued customers to be informed about their water utility. If you want to learn more, please attend any of our regularly scheduled meetings that are held on the second Monday of every month at 4:30 PM at the Town Hall council room.
Our operators are certified by the Alabama Department of Environmental Management (ADEM), which means they have the adequate training to safely operate and maintain your water supply system. Each operator must also take continuing education classes each year to maintain their certification.
We produce water from the ground from a layer of rock called the Little Oak Limestone. We draw water from two wells installed in this aquifer, which are located approximately two miles from town. After disinfection and treatment, the water is pumped to a water storage system consisting of four ground-level tanks and one elevated tank totally 1,100,000 gallons of storage. From storage, the water is then pumped through approximately 60 miles of poping before being distributed to your tap.
