North Cherokee Water Supply Corporation was first organized as the MET Water Supply Corporation in 1965 with a total of 60 meters. It was established to provide water to the rural communities of Mixon, Enterprise, and Tecula.
In 1972 Mt. Selman Water Supply Corporation was organized to furnish 40 members. The well drilled in Mt. Selman did not provide adequate water and through the guidance of FHA, the MET Water Supply and Mt.Selman Water Supply Corporation were consolidated into one system. It was renamed North Cherokee Water Supply Corporation.
Our current office was built in 1995 to provide a central location to accommodate our customers. It is at the corner of Highway 69 and FM 177 in Mt. Selman.
From the beginning, North Cherokee Water Supply Corporation has been purchasing water from the City of Jacksonville. In 2012 the first deep water well was drilled three miles west of Mt. Selman. This well now provides a majority of water to our customers. With two water sources and four distribution facilities we serve a total of 1,624 active connections.
Our two sources of water are a well in Larissa, providing groundwater from the Carizzo/Wilcox aquifer, and surface water from Lake Jacksonville, purchased from the City of Jacksonville.
