The Bear Valley Water Authority is very proud of our community’s water system and we are committed to providing our customers with the highest quality drinking water at an affordable cost. We supply water to customers in Hamilton, St. Thomas, and Peters Townships.  The Authority was incorporated in 1965 to provide public water to service three townships, Hamilton Township (34.4 sq. miles), St. Thomas Township (49.7 sq. miles) and Peters Township (54.7 sq. miles). The system was originally built to service a maximum of 1,400 connections. At start-up in 1969, 900 connections had been established. Today, the Authority serves over 4,300 connections.
