About Curry Water Authority

The Curry Water System is classified as a rural water system that provides potable water to approximately 17,300 population or 5,790 active customer connections  in Walker and Winston County, Alabama. The coverage area includes the communities of Curry, South Lowell, Macedonia, Thach, Poplar Springs, Black Pond, Redmill, and the west/southwest parts of Lewis Smith Lake.

The Curry Water System was designed by Paul Krebs & Associates, Inc. in 1973 to serve 1,500 customer connections. Construction began September of 1978 and was completed by Tucker Brothers Contracting Company in July of 1980. The water system consisted of the Curry elevated 300,000 gallon water storage tank and the Thach elevated 100,000 gallon water storage tank. Approximately 125 miles of distribution system piping consisting of 2 1/2, 3, 6, and 8 inch lines, also two booster pumping stations. Over the next couple of years, various extensions were approved over the Curry and Thach areas. In September of 1982, construction began on the Redmill extension and was completed by Apel Machine and Supply Company in November of 1983. This extension consisted of the Redmill standpipe 500,000 gallon storage tank, approximately 85 miles of distribution piping consisting of 3,6, and 8 inch lines, and one booster pumping station. Since this time, four booster pumping stations (total 7), two standpipe, and three elevated water storage tanks have been added (totaling 8). Now, the system consists of approximately 5,790 active customer connections and 2.8 million gallons of water storage and approximately 376 miles of distribution mains with a total coverage area of about 180 square miles. Since 2011 we have been pursuing again a permit to withdraw water from Lewis Smith Lake to supply a drinking water filtration plant to furnish our own water to our customers. we currently purchase our water from Jasper which comes from Warrior River.
