Recently named Rural Water System of the Year by the South Dakota Association of Rural Water Systems, Randall Community Water District serves customers in portions of Aurora, Bon Homme, Brule, Douglas and Hutchinson counties in southeastern South Dakota. It also supplies water to Armour, Corsica, Delmont, Geddes, Lake Andes, Pickstown, Platte, Ravinia, Wagner, Dante, as well as the Yankton Sioux Tribe, Aurora-Brule Rural Water and Davison Rural Water Districts.
Scott Pick, general manager, Randall Community Water District (RCWD), explains the scope of their growing service area. “We serve 2,800 taps—that’d be individual households, rural farms, rural pastures, cabin taps, and we serve every bulk customer,” Pick says. “And we also serve two rural water districts. So in a year’s time, we’ll serve about a billion gallons of water to this area.”
