City of Hutchinson to Sell Water to Reno County Rural Water District 101

By Lucky Kidd, Ad Astra Radio


HUTCHINSON – The Hutchinson City Council Tuesday agreed to sell water to Reno County Rural Water District 101 in the Yoder area. The water district has long been plagued with high nitrate issues and purchasing water from Hutchinson is one option Reno County has been looking at to address the situation.

The city has more than adequate water available to sell to the Yoder district. Rates for water would be the same as it sells to Rural Water District 4, which covers connection and meter charges, and a usage charge 4.63 per hundred cubic feet for the first 500 HCF per month, and 4.16 per HCF for usage above 500 HCF in a month.

A town hall meeting for residents of Rural Water District 101 will be held on Thursday August 11th at 6:30 p.m. at Journey of Yoder Activity Center, during which Reno County Commissioners and staff will review what is being done to address high nitrate levels and the future of the water system.
