Located North of Bluffton, the town of Murray is an unincorporated rural member of Wells County. The town of Murray does not have sanitary sewer infrastructure; waste from homes and businesses are discharged into various onsite systems and holding tanks where it leaks into stormwater systems, ditches and even the drinking water table.

As of July 2020, harmful bacteria levels in Murray’s drainage systems were between 100 and 10,000 times the accepted healthy level. Due to the need for adequate wastewater removal in Murray, the WCRSD has focused on the extension of sanitary sewer service to the town as a top priority project area in the 2020/2021 projects round.
