The City of Franklin treated the water to customers until 1993, when Simpson Water began purchasing water from White House Utility District in White House, Tennessee. Today, the diverse base of residential, agricultural, commercial and industrial customers has grown to serve over 3,300 individuals as the utility continues to expand.
The progressive thinking of the original Simpson County Water District leaders continues with an ongoing commitment to ensuring availability of water to all those in Simpson County who need it.

Simpson County Water District began operations on April 14, 1964 after the Simpson County Court determined the creation of a water utility was in the best interest of public health and convenience. The original Board of Commissioners appointed by the Court was Billy Jeff Cherry, David H. Roark and Jack H. Ferguson.

After consulting with community residents, federal funding agencies and engineers, construction of the first Simpson Water project was completed in 1968 serving 500 customers. Water service was provided through a network of pipes, pumping stations, tanks and other facilities needed to bring a pure, potable water supply to remote and undeveloped locations throughout Simpson County.
