For several years, members of the Van Hook Park traveled eight miles to New Town and back to get water for their homes and cabins, but thanks to a $50,000 donation from Slawson Exploration Company, residents will soon have a water kiosk right in the park.
“When the proposal for Rural Water at Van Hook came across my desk, it was a no-brainer,” said Todd Slawson, president of Slawson Exploration Company. “This type of project that serves a community as a whole is exactly the type of thing that our company is proud to support.”
Mountrail County Park Board Chairman Eric Jaeger told the Minot Daily News that the Board is grateful for the donation. Not only will it make water immediately available park residents, but it will also help free up Park Board funds for other important improvement projects.
