Sept. 4, 1968 — ODEN WATER LOAN

A Farmers Home Administration loan to the Oden Water Assn. was closed Sept. 3. The money was presented to the association by Terry Stigile, local FHA county supervisor. He presented the money to Jack Hickey, president of the association, and board members Perry Larkin, Ed Batlen, Bill Hall and Elmer Dahl.

The water association was started in 1967 by Oden area residents who were suffering a shortage of water from their shallow wells and springs.

The $208,000 FHA loan plus an additional $39,000 contributed by association members will be used to construct a domestic water system consisting of approximately 27 miles of pipeline, 100,000 gallon storage tank, pumps and a filter plant. It will serve many farmers in the area in addition to rural homes and homes along the lake at Sunnyside and east Kootenai point.
