Installation of new temporary water supply for the James Kinney Farmstead
main house, showing the filters and UV light in the basement. This water
supply will replace the water supply from the dug well below the main
barn which is expected to be lost after mining has been completed. This
hand dug well has supplied water to the James Kinney Farmstead for over
200 years (since approximately 1795).
