Water/Sewer/Lagoon/ BULK WATER STATION Services:
The Village maintains a fully operational water treatment plant with storage capacity of 158,000 gallons of water. Our water is extremely soft, so you may feel the need to change soaps etc. to better suit the water. Due to the geographic placement of the Village, our sewer is lifted to the lagoon 1 ¼ miles from town by the way of two lift stations. In 2019, the Village of Hughenden opened up a modern Bulk Water Station across from the Encompass Credit Union. Water supply businesses have taken advantage our new plant in record numbers in the past 18 months
