The Church Water Supply

For many years the church and manse had a common water supply. There were two 5000+ gallon brick cisterns that collected rain water from the roof of the church. One cistern was partially filled with sand and as the water entered it the water was filtered through the sand and drained into the second cistern. An electric pump drew the water from the second cistern, pumping it into a pressure tank and from there it was distributed through the church and over to the manse. In dry weather, the Ohioville Fire Department would be contacted to bring a tanker load of water to do until the next rain.
