Water on the Mountain

PondWater has been a precious and limited resource at Hope Springs since her birth. Virtually every drop of drinking, bathing, cooking, and laundry water has been carried up the mountain from town in a tank on a truck, except for a tiny amount that comes from an old well by the farmhouse. This well could only handle the needs of a few people, and would go dry in summer. As Hope Springs grew, we grew to 5 cisterns and 5 pumps. The water supply “system” required huge amounts of attention, scheduling, and money. Imagine the logistics when a cistern went dry because a toilet ran all night! Or when storms took out the power and we needed 4 generators to run the pumps!

All this changed in December, when county water was finally available on
Peach Mountain. Read More
