Your petitioners further show to the court that the district aforesaid adjoins Kansas City, Jackson County, Missouri, and that there is now a population in same of approximately 1,200 inhabitants; that there are now approximately 330 homes in the said district, together with 15 dairies, 10 greenhouses, 2 cemeteries, 2 lake resorts, and 15 filling stations, and that the entire district is thoroughly served with paved highways; that said district is ideally located for suburban homes and family residences; that the entire district is now without any water system of any kind or nature whatsoever, except from wells, cisterns and springs, and that the residences and businesses located within the said district are thereby greatly handicapped in beautification and development because of a lack of such water system; that it has become necessary in the past, as a result of the lack of said water system, to constantly and continuously cause such water as is now used to be analyzed and tested and at all times to cause fear in the minds of the residents of the territory as to its wholesomeness; that all of the property situate within the said district aforesaid will greatly benefit therefrom and the value thereof will be greatly enhanced.
