Water pressure and fire fighting capabilities have improved tremendously for a small Alabama border town.
Recently, the town of brand new 137-foot high water tower went on line.
It can hold more than 150-thousand gallons of water and replaces a 40-year-old above ground tank.
Besides serving its 150 household customers, Black's Mayor Tom Majors, says the water lines now extend several miles to state Highway 167.
That will allow additional folks into the system.
"We how have six-inch lines and has improved water pressure tremendously…this new water tower is just wonderful," said Mayor Majors.
The mayor says the water tower and new lines cost around one-million dollars.
The money comes through a grant-loan from the U.S Department of Agriculture.
