  • Water Transport was founded in 1977 by life-long Ohio Valley resident Michael Kuester, a 1974 graduate of Steubenville High School. Seeing a need for Bulk Water hauling in rural areas, Mike purchased the first bulk milk truck, which was converted to haul water. Unlike other water haulers which used steel tanks, Water Transport set the standard by using stainless steel and incorporating many of the sanitation procedures used in the dairy industry. In the early 80’s, Mike actually assisted the Ohio Department of Health in drafting what is currently known as “Private Water Systems Rules, Ohio Administrative Code Chapter 3701-28”, which are, to this day, the guidelines for bulk water hauling in the state of Ohio.

    In 1984, it was becoming obvious that there was an increasing awareness of the poor quality and taste of the municipal tap water. At that time, Water Transport entered the bottled water market and remains very active today as the largest independent, private label distributor in the Ohio Valley.

    In 2010, Water Transport expanded with an Energy Services Division to meet the growing needs of the Oil and Gas Industry in the Ohio Valley.

    Since its inception, Water Transport has seen consistent yearly growth. Mike attributes success to a number of things; good timing, customers that like to deal locally and most of all “great customer service” provided by a great Water Transport staff. This can happen only when you have a staff that is committed to detail and excellence as they are here at Water Transport.
