The Remington Water Works was established in 1897 with a brick water tower being built and cast iron mains buried at a cost of $11,000. The original wells were deep in limestone and water quality was poor. The town currently operates six wells with the oldest drilled in 1952, and the newest in 2003. All of the wells are drilled in glacial deposits of sand and gravel between fifty and eighty feet deep.
The Remington Water Works serves 643 customers and pumps on average 302,000 gallons of water daily. Two 250,000 gallon water towers provide storage and fire protection for the surrounding area.
The cost for the deposit for a home owner for a residential water meter is $100. The deposit cost is $120 for a business. The deposit is refunded if a resident pays their water bill on time for 24 consecutive months.
