Controversy Ended - Town Given Water

The Register-Leader, December 9, 1921

Williamstown is no longer a veritable Sahara and the dry period of the past six days is now ended.  Once again water is gushing through the mains of the town across the river and the controversy that brought on the arid season is definitely settled.

Under an agreement reached between officials of the Williamstown Water, Light and Power Company and directors of the Farmers and Mechanics National Bank, the latter organization assumes temporary control of the water plant and has advanced the money in full payment of the bill rendered by the city of Marietta for water furnished since April last.  This money was turned over to Marietta city officials shortly after six o'clock Thursday evening and the water was immediately turned on.
