What began with a small office on Hwy 63 has grown into a stand alone water plant, purification facility. Huntsville Utility began serving only 272 customers in the summer of 1964. Over the years of expansion and growth, Huntsville Utility has made many changes.
In the summer of 1970, water lines were expanded into the southern portion of Scott County into the Robbins community. In June of 1973, Huntsville Utility acquired Robbins Utility District.
HUD began placing elevated water tanks in several key areas of the county for water storage.
In the 1980's, the new water plant became a reality. The purpose was to draw raw water from the reservoir that was to be located behind the plant. Also, there was a waterline intake ran from New River located just above the old swimming hole in Huntsville. This allowed Huntsville Utility to expand the water supply to Norma, further into the Robbins, and on into Rugby.
In the 1990's, the water plant was updated and the reservoir was under construction. In the spring of 2002 the reservoir was complete.
Now, with the county's growth, Huntsville Utility supplies water to over 4600 customers.
