The City of Bogue had a problem with their water supply challenge and EBH was put on the task to fix it.  Not only did EBH coordinate, design and inspect the project to correct their problem, EBH developed a cohesive working team that included City of Bogue, Hill City, USDA Rural Development and the KS Department of Commerce. This team brainstormed to provide the correct and most financially feasible solution. EBH was the facilitator between all parties in developing an agreement. Regionalization was determined to be the best solution for Hill City and the City of Bogue.  Hill City drilled a new water supply well and will provide water to Bogue using a new water supply line installed from Hill City to Bogue. Hill City has a new water well and the City of Bogue has a ready supply of quality drinking water. The teamwork resulted in a win-win solution for both communities. The team was open minded and willing to work together to provide the best solution for their communities.

Regionalization makes this project particularly great.  The large number of smaller communities in Kansas make regionalization efforts extremely important.  Hill City, Bogue, EBH, Rural Development and Kansas Department of Commerce worked together to develop a solution that benefited everyone and positioned themselves for the future.
