Basement Sump Pumps
Omaha Foundation Pros can provide you and your home with basement sump pump installation, repair, and maintenance services. A basement sump pump can be used to effectively keep water from getting into your basement and laying stagnant. A sump pump works by accumulating water in a sump pit. Once it reaches a certain level, the water is forced out and away from the home. This means that you never have to venture down into a wet basement ever again after a bad rainstorm!
We also offer battery backup sump pumps which are great for when the power goes out. Traditional basement sumps work on electrical power, so if the power goes out, so does your sump pump. Battery backup sump pumps will be switched on automatically when the first sump fails or shuts off. This is a great system to have if you are wanting to guarantee that your basement will never experience water problems ever again!
The territory on which Worthington happens to be situated was initially bought by David Lovelace from the United States Government. The Dubuque South-Western Railroad - the area branch of the Chicago-Milwaukee and St. Paul lines - was contracted to build a line from Farley to Cedar Rapids, Iowa. In 1858, an Englishman known as Amos Worthington came to the region to create a general store. By November 1858 the region became an unincorporated town referred to as village of Worthington. By May of the next year regular rail service was set up. A plat of Worthington was set up with the Dubuque county recorder in 1858.
In 1861, Worthington sold his store to a William Moore and departed for Cincinnati, Ohio. Ultimately this store became called the Heffner and Lattner Store. Settlers also started showing up in your community, with a number of individuals setting up businesses.
Soon a Baptist Church was set up in Worthington, with James Hill as Pastor. In 1868 Father Kortenkamp of St. Francis parish in Dyersville, Iowa made the decision that Worthington was big enough to deserve its own Catholic parish, and St. Paul's Catholic Church was started.
On October 1, 1892, numerous local inhabitants filed a petition in the District Court of Iowa in and for Dubuque County demanding Worthington to be officially incorporated as a town. On November 23, the court called for village occupants Peter Baum, W. Lattner, G.A. Dando, Louis Hoppleu, and Theodore Ament to act as commissioners. As commissioners they were to demand a special election of all qualified individuals in the proposed region to vote on the matter of becoming incorporated. This election occured on January 2, 1893. There were 42 votes cast - 32 were for the proposal and ten were against. Eight days later, on January 10, 1893, the Clerk of the District Court reported that the election occured.
The notice of the incorporation election was published in the Dyersville Commercial for a number of weeks, with the last notice getting released on February 17, 1893. Then on March 6, 1893 the results of the election were officially certified by the District Court Clerk - completing the incorporation of Worthington, Iowa. The official date of incorporation of Worthington was set as January 2, 1893 when the special election had occurred.
