The largest contributor to that interconnecting system will soon have its newest deep well running.

It will draw the deepest drinking water in the state, drawing form the Tuscaloosa Aquifer.

They say because of the water's age, customers will notice a change in texture, but it's nothing to be alarmed about.

They will be able to tell a difference in the water being softer, with soft water you don't have to use as much soap with soft water,” said Don Hallford of General Manager Ozark Utilities Board.

The Tuscaloosa Aquifer well and its 16-inch water main cost $2.2 million.

Ozark utilities leaders say there will not be a price increase because of the well.
