Scope and Content

These files document the construction of Orderville's water system. When Orderville was incorporated in August 1935, stockholders of the Orderville Water Company transferred their water shares to the new town to create a community water system. The town borrowed money from the Federal Emergency Administration of Public Works (WPA) for its construction. The files include the articles of incorporation of the Orderville Water Company, transfer slips from the Orderville Water Company stockholders, related correspondence, ordinance authorizing construction of the water system, billings, reports, bid documents, change requests, equipment purchases, and a Department of Health's engineering survey of Orderville's water supply system.
