Twin Brooks's existing water operator wanted to retire and it was difficult to find a new licensed operator. In addition, Twin Brooks's existing wells were deteriorating. A Facility Plan was completed with the assistance of a Small Community Planning Grant and funding from East Dakota Water Development District. The Facility Plan recommended connection to the nearby Grant Roberts Rural Water System, which offered better water quality and was willing to take over maintenance of the City's water distribution system. The City's wells were abandoned and 2,245' of 6" water main was installed to connect the community to the rural water system. The project also included a pressure reducing/metering building with chemical feed as well as meter pits at each of the 39 connections within the community. Twin Brooks was able to receive $349,400 in grant funding for the project to assist with the cost of Facility Plan preparation, engineering design, construction, and construction observation, minimizing the financial burden on the community.
