REUBEN GARCIA/Contributor — S.S. Water Supply Corp. General Manager Herb Williams ensures the shovels and hard hats are ready Jan. 6 for the groundbreaking of the corporation’s new maintenance facility.

S.S. Water Supply Corp. near La Vernia has broken ground for a new maintenance facility. A host of officials, local dignitaries, county officials, and more gathered Jan. 6, shovels in hand, to break ground for a new maintenance facility on Blackjack Road near La Vernia, adjacent to the corporation’s office.

According to the corporation’s General Manager Herb Williams after the event, the maintenance complex will take approximately 150 days to complete. The 9,600-square-foot facility will house equipment –such as backhoes and lawn mowers — and will include training rooms and the central computer control for the water system.

The nonprofit, member-owned water supplier currently serves more than 4,800 members in an area covering more than 170 square miles, with approximately 20 new members joining each month. Maintenance has, until now, been housed in S.S. Water Supply Corp.’s original building in Sutherland Springs.

“We’ll be able to drive all the vehicles and equipment into the new building and store them inside, away from the elements”

– Herb Williams
