Meeting slated to discuss water grant

SoVaNow.com / May 17, 2010
The Halifax County Service Authority will host an informational meeting Thursday at 5 p.m. in the second floor meeting room of the Mary Bethune Complex to provide an opportunity for the 20 residents affected by a $1.072 million grant from the Virginia Department of Environmental Quality to ask questions about how the money will be used.

Funding from the grant will be used to extend the eight inch water line some 10,240 feet from its current end at the VFW building on Route 501 across the Banister River bridge and up the hill to Charlie’s General Store. The water lines will then be extended down Occoneechee Trail and along Lakeshore Drive, affecting 19 homeowners there. The water supply for those homeowners is affected either by a leaking underground storage tank or because their property is in the vicinity of other affected properties.

Representatives of the Department of Environmental Quality will be present to answer any questions residents may have about the project.

Earlier in the afternoon, beginning at 3:30 p.m. the Board of Directors of the Authority will meet to review financial data and project activity updates. They are also expected to discuss what response they need to make to the BiState Water Commission’s request for input on how the stored water at the Kerr Reservoir should be allocated.
