Springdale Water Main Installation

A new 12-inch water main insuring an adequate water supply for Springdale was cause for celebration in August 1950. City leaders who played a major role in the water line construction project were on hand when water first gushed through the line at a fire hydrant north of Springdale High School’s football stadium. From left: Fred Watson, Mayor Elmer Johnson, city engineer Jimmy Highfill, Joe Steele, and James Littrell. Steele was chairman of the city council water committee; Watson and Littrell were committee members. Special thanks to Springdale Water Utilities director Rene Langston for help in researching this photo. Era Walker Collection (S-2006-65)
