Midas Water System -- 20 years of great service!
© 2010-2012 Friends of Midas. All Rights Reserved.
In the fall of 1992, after the official establishment of the Midas Water Cooperative, a hardy group of dedicated workers installed a brand-spankin' new water system throughout the entire town. In some places, the new, larger pipe went in alongside the old iron pipes. These nine videos show the guys (and one videographer) hard at work over the course of this three-month project. (To expand the size of the video, click on the date at the top of each box.)
