Tim put these wells to beneficial use by farming cotton and alfalfa for 50 years.
In 1951 Pahrump was a very small town with only a few farm families. Cotton made the Pahrump Valley. In 1963, due to the irrigation pumping, there was enough horsepower demand to attract an electric coop. Then telephones arrived in 1965. The first telephone book had 76 subscribers. A copy of the first edition of the telephone book hangs on the wall at the utility’s office. Pahrump finally had the ingredients to start a town.
As time went by and the town grew, farming was replaced with land development and there became a need for water and wastewater services. The farming wells and associated water rights were converted to municipal and are being used to serve customers in the South end of the Pahrump valley.
The Hafen Family has over 65 years of water experience and is proud to be Pahrump Utility, your locally owned and operated utility.
