This month’s NEWSTALK WTIM Central Illinois Smiles Family Dentistry “Big Smile for the Community” honoree is Alta Himstedt. Himstedt works hard to solve a common issue in rural areas. As a result of road construction and the need to haul water for their wells, Alta and neighbors formed the Sharpsburg and neighboring area water system, which brings water to more than 200 people and is still expanding.
Himstedt says she was thinking about her home and her neighbors when she helped to create the water system
Himstedt says when more people wanted help getting water after phase one was completed, she got back to work to help her neighbors.
