About the Anna-Jonesboro Water Commission

The Anna-Jonesboro Water Commission was established in 1967 as an intergovernmental agreement between the cities of Anna and Jonesboro in hopes to provide a clean and dependable drinking water source for both communities. Construction on new wells and a water treatment plant began in early 1968. The commission then broke ground in the fall of 1968 on a 500,000 gallon elevated tower that is still in use today and is located behind Anna-Jonesboro Community High School. Once all sites had been completed, the commission officially started up its water plant and began the treatment process.

As the years went along, the Union County Board of Commissioners appointed a third member to the board. We have also completed three renovations and expansions since 1970 to meet the growing needs of our customers, as well as meeting and exceeding regulations placed by the IEPA.

Today, the Anna-Jonesboro Water Commission also sells water to the following entities: Shawnee Valley Water District, Lick Creek Water District and Choate Mental Health and Development. The AJWC provides an estimated 10,000 people with water and treats an estimated 360 million gallons of water each year.
