Getting water has always been a problem in the Copper River Valley. Fortunately, people have stepped up to provide water sources. This is a common situation throughout Alaska's entire road system. Similar small water-delivery sheds have brought water to Clear, Nenana, Fairbanks, Eagle, Trapper Creek and many other towns and communities.

In the Copper Valley, (as is true statewide) various pump houses have come and gone. There have been community pumps at Kenny Lake, in Glennallen, at Gakona Junction... and at Tazlina.
