The Sneedville Utility District was created by Dana H. Bowlin, County Judge, and the Hancock County Commission on September 29, 1951. The District was created under the provision of Chapter 248 of the Tennessee Public Act of 1937.
The original members appointed as commissioners of the newly created Sneedville Utility District were B.L. Satterfield, A.Y. Turner, and J.E. Mills. It was not until February 17, 1978 when the Sneedville Utility District received a Charter from Tennessee Secretary of State, recorded in Miscellaneous Book 13, Pages 3-8 in the Register of Deeds Office of Hancock County, Tennessee.
The utility has grown from 100 customers initially to nearly 1,000 customers today. At the beginning, the water supplied the residents of Sneedville from a spring located on Duck Creek Road southeast of Sneedville, then from a spring on Mill Dam Road due west of Sneedville off Back Valley Road, later years from the Clinch River, now our only water supply comes from the abandoned New Jersey Zinc Mines in the Treadway Community south of Sneedville.
Sneedville Utility District today uses a state of the art satellite system which controls the storage tanks and pumps. This system has reduced water loss through constant monitoring of our overall system.
Our goal is not only to serve the residents of Sneedville, but Hancock residents as well, and with future plans to provide water to Grainger and Hawkins Counties residents...all with quality water at reasonable costs.
Our Mission is to provide our customers a clean, safe, and sufficient water supply by providing a reliable system that meets all federal and state regulations, and at the same time at the lowest rates possible.
