East Logan Water District went into operation in 1979 with approximately 70 miles of waterline, one 200,000 gallon tank, one booster pump station and around 500 customers.  All water was purchased from the City of Russellville.

By 1991, the East Logan Water District had grown and was maintaining approximately 200 miles of waterline ranging in size from 2″ to 8″.  An additional 220,000 gallon storage tank had been purchased and installed and a new booster pump station was added.  We served approximately 1350 customers at that time.

In 2003, the District began purchasing all water from the new Logan Todd Regional Water Commission. It boasted a state of the art facility with a membrane treatment process, and an abundant supply of water. As of 2005, the East Logan Water District had approximately 250 miles of waterline ranging in size from 3” to 8”. The District had 3 storage tanks and served approximately 2619 customers. By 2008, the District had approximately 290 miles of waterline, 3 storage tanks, a newly installed booster pump station, and was serving approximately 2846 customers.

In keeping with our main goal to service all parts north and south in East Logan County, in 2011 we added approximately 1 mile of 12” ductile iron line on the east end of our District. This line not only serves to help provide the eastern portion of the county with an abundant supply of water, it can also be used as a connection for Warren County if there is ever a need.  In addition, this line will adequately supply water for any future industry that may move into the area.  At the end of 2015, East Logan Water District relocated to its newly purchased office building at 333 S. Franklin St. in Russellville where we continue to service our customers.   We are proud of the progress we have made over the years and continue to strive to deliver clean safe drinking water to our customers.  As of 2023, we have approximately 330 miles of waterline and serve about 3,400 customers in our area.  Come grow with us!
