DKWD will be replacing old meters with new electronic read meters starting in May 2012. Some of our customers will have some dirt and air in their water after they are changed out, they will have to let their water run till it clears up. We have installed over 433 as of 03/09/2016.
August 13 2012: The District traded its John Deere 110 back hoe for a new Case 580 super N. This back hoe is a lot bigger so the District can do repairs and new services in house to help keep cost affordable to the customer.
June 2009: Devils Kitchen Water District purchased a new CAT portable generator to power the pump stations in case of power outages.
