The Water Controversy 1879
Who Will Supply Water to Deadwood


Homestake Mining Company Versus Father De Smeth Mining Company
Company Owned Water Companys Take It To The Voters

Deadwood's water supply was insufficient for the demand of its business economy and residential growth. A petition to close the water contract with Wyoming and Dakota Water Company was circulated by a local businessman. Bids were then asked for to supply water to Deadwood. Canal and Water Company, owned by Homestake Mining Company, claimed the water from Dakota and Wyoming Water Company, owned by DeSmet Mining Company, would not be pure and clear because it ran beneath Mt. Moriah Cemetery. Seth Bullock, a member of a citizen committee, investigated the Canal and Water Company claims but found no issues with Dakota and Wyoming Water Company. The Committee was satisfied with amount and quality of the water from both providers. Citizens were urged to vote. Deadwood and South Deadwood supported opposite contractors. A vote for Canal and Water Company was suggested to be a vote for Homestake. DeSmet Company in turn published an extra in their newspaper why citizens should choose Wyoming and Dakota Water Company over Canal. The Election was held and the vote was in favor of Canal and Water Company by a large margin. Homestake had won over DeSmet Company. The press wrote in an article, Wyoming and Dakota Water Company paid out their share, but paid less voters. More information concerning the Deadwood Water Supply Controversy may be found here.
