The village of Herrick is looking at a major water system project in the next few years. The community is currently in the design phase of the water distribution project, with construction being planned to start in 2019.
Annette Martin is on the Herrick village board and appeared as a guest on the Newstalk WTIM Hometown Tour live from the Cowden Community Building. She says quality water is vital for the small community.
Martin says the community is in the same boat as many other area small towns, their water system is aging and needs to be upgraded.
Martin says replacing the older pipes has been an ongoing process, but the grant from Rural Water that the village has received will play a huge part in Herrick rebuilding its water infrastructure.
