Mark Williams saw a major concern with the quality of drinking water. He had wanted to find a way to supplement his farming income and saw an opportunity through Osegaro Water Conditioning.
Williams purchased Osegaro and has started his own business by opening Williams Water Works in Storm Lake.
Williams, his wife, Deb and their two children live in Sulfur Springs, where Mark has farmed for the past 25 years. As a family, they look forward to the new opportunity that awaits them.
"I have been farming for years and thought it was time to try something different," Williams said. "I decided to take a flying leap and hope to land on both feet. We've been looking into something different for a few years and I think this is a good decision for us."
Williams said he believes that the new business might even be something that his kids will want to get into in the near future. Looking ahead to the kid's future was part of the purchasing decision, he said.
Williams has opened his business in an old laundry mat building, located south of Malarky's. He began remodeling the building in January and is close to having everything complete.
"We still have a few things to touch up and we're hoping to put in a new parking lot soon," Williams said. "It's a mess out front and there's only room for three cars so we need to do something out there."
