Welcome to the Hamilton
Water District website! Our purpose is to make
sure that you, the consumer, are informed of the
services that are available to you from YOUR water
district. It is our mission to provide the
quality water with the highest level of customer
service. We are totally committed to reliable
service and a quality product.
The Hamilton Water District was founded in
1964 when the original board of directors, under the
chairmanship of James Cunningham, borrowed $160,000
from First National Bank of Aberdeen for
construction of the needed facilities. Other members
of the board of directors were G.W. Coward,
secretary, and board members Jimmy Camp, Jack
O'Mary, Al Foster, and L.D. Watson. Ted Tumlinson,
of West Point, along with Mr. Cunningham, an
engineeer himself, handled engineering for the new
project. The original water tank, seen in the above
right photo, still stands at the intersection of
U.S. Highway 45 and Hamilton Road.
We have recently re-painted and completely
re-worked our elevated water tanks, doubled the size
of our headquarters building and adopted new
innovations in water service, including monitoring
plants, pumps, tanks and wells with the SCADA
Shown in the photo at bottom left(from left)
are Ted Tumlinson, G.W. Coward, Jimmy Camp, Al
Watson, and James Cunningham.
As the years rolled by, the
Hamilton Water District expanded its lines to serve
an even larger area. Additional lines were laid, and
new pumps and water tanks were constructed at Lackey
and on McDuffie Cemetery Road.
Our modern facility is operated by five
employees and governed by a board of five directors.
We are very proud of our ability to serve our
patrons and meet the continuing growth of the South
Monroe County area we serve.
