All About Us

On June 18, 1962, 38 farm family members met at the Wiley Legion Hall for the purpose of organizing an association to deliver water to the farms in the May Valley and Wiley areas. At this meeting, the name of Pleasant Valley Water Association was adopted and a board of directors elected. This board of directors met numerous times and spent many hours collecting members for the Association. Finally, the board of directors approached the Farmers Home Administration for a loan to drill wells and install pipe for the Association. Said loan was granted and work commenced to build the Association.

On May 7, 1963, it was determined that it was necessary to form two associations instead of one as originally planned. At this time May Valley Water Association was formed and a board of directors were elected for May Valley Water. The directors divided up the service area between the two associations.

In July, 1965, the first meters were read. At this time the Associations owned 6 wells and 3 booster stations with a storage capacity of 420,000 gallons.

In 1971, it was decided to merge the two associations and operate solely as May Valley Water Association. The Association currently has 9 treatment plants, 3 booster stations, storage capacity of 820,000 and over 600 water meters.

Information

I THINK I HAVE A LEAK - WHAT DO I DO?
HOW TO DETECT LEAKS


The best way to determine if you have a leak in your plumbing system is by first checking your water meter. If you do not know where your meter is located, you can call May Valley Water to get the meter location.

1. Make sure no water is being used inside or outside of your house.
2. Locate your water meter and check the leak indicator to see if it is moving. Depending on the brand of meter, the leak indicator could be a small triangular shaped dial or a small silver wheel that rotates when water is flowing through the meter. If the dial is moving, chances are, you have a leak.
3. Or, you can also take a meter reading and wait 1 or 2 hours and take another meter reading (make sure no water is used during this time). If the reading has changed, you may have a leak.
Once you have determined that you have a leak, the next step is to determine if the leak is inside or outside the house.
1. Locate the main shut-off valve to your home and shut off the water at the valve.
2. Check the leak indicator for movement or use the meter reading method described above. If the leak indicator stops moving or there is no change in the meter readings, you have a leak inside your house. If the leak indicator continues to move or there is a change in the meter readings, then the leak is outside between the meter and the house.

INSIDE THE HOUSE - LIKELY LEAK CULPRITS

1. Leaking faucets
2. Leaking toilets
3. Flapper valve/flush handle/overflow tubes on toilet
4. Water softeners
5. Ice makers

OUTSIDE THE HOUSE - LIKELY LEAK CULPRITS

1. Hydrants
2. Underground pipes - look for a patch of grass or weeds that stays green or is greener than the rest and/or wet/damp areas

WATER - USE IT WISELY
★ Turn off the tap while brushing your teeth. Water comes out of the average faucet at 2.5 gallons per minute. Don't let all that water go down the drain while you brush. Turn off the faucet after you wet your brush and leave it off until it's time to rinse.
★ Operate automatic dishwashers and clothes washers only when they are fully loaded or properly set the water level for the size of the load you are using.
★ Avoid using running water to thaw frozen foods.
★ Store drinking water in the refrigerator rather than letting the tap run every time you want a cool glass of water.
★ Take shorter showers. Replace your showerhead with an ultra-low-flow version.
★ Find and fix any leaky faucets. A faucet leaking 60 drops per minute will waste 192 gallons per month. That is equal to 2,304 gallons a year.
★ Sweep outdoor surfaces with a broom instead of using a hose.
★ Water lawns during the early morning hours when temperatures and wind speed are the lowest. This reduces losses from evaporation.
★ Raise the lawn mower blade to at least three inches. A lawn cut higher encourages grass roots to grow deeper, shades the root system and holds soil moisture better.
