South Harrison Water Corp.
South Harrison Water will continue to invest in our greatest asset ... the lines providing service to our customers. As our customer base continues to grow, we must expand our water system to meet their needs.
Fire Hydrants - We are doing our best to expand areas covered by fire hydrants. In 1997, South Harrison Water had 9 fire hydrants installed on our entire water system. Today we have 114 fire hydrants in service. As new lines are built, fire hydrants will be installed in those areas. South Harrison Water worked with our local volunteer fire departments to gain funding from the Harrison County Commissioners and Council to install 43 of the new hydrants. The remaining 62 hydrants were funded by South Harrison Water.
Make sure you call your home owners insurance company to ask for a discount if you live within 1,000 feet of a fire hydrant.
