The Ramsey County Water Resource District (RCWRD) was the main sponsor for the development of rural water and sewer systems currently serving the rural citizens of the Lake Region area. The RCWRD established Creel Domestic Utilities back in 1984 for the purpose of collecting waste water and sewage from rural Devils Lake. The project was completed with Ramsey County owning and maintaining the system.
The push for a rural water system began in 1988 with Creel Domestic taking the lead in promoting and obtaining a potable water supply for the rural areas around the City of Devils Lake and Ramsey County. The project needed a sponsor with the ability to bond and borrow money. An agreement was signed between Creel Domestic Utilities and RCRWD to transfer all interest pertaining to the project over to the RCWRD. The project was completed in 1992 and began serving 700 users. The project included a treatment plant, elevated tower, transmission line, main line and service lines.
The County owned the sewer system and RCWRD owned the water system. An agreement was signed in 1992 between Ramsey County and RCWRD whereas RCWRD agreed to take over the day to day operations of both the water and sewer systems under one set of employees thus forming Ramsey County Rural Utilities.
