Some of you may have read articles on the recent completion of Sugar Land's $69 million surface water project. I thought I'd post this article about Sugar Land's water system, which appeared in the July 1953 issue of The Imperial Crown.
I learned quite a bit from the article. There were 4 wells in 1953. Two supplied industrial water; the other two supplied residential water. The residential water tank is still in place although I don't think it is operational. The article says there were two water towers at that time. Of course, the taller one remains standing near Main St. (Here's a recent photo showing the relevant area on Main St.)
