Madison County’s water line project in the south and western portion of the county is complete.
“We have completed the Hwy. 98, Neese-Commerce Road and Neese-Diamond Hill Road — all that is completed,” said industrial authority executive director Marvin White. “The taps are in and there’s water service available there now. The fire departments haven’t actually done their testing as far as flow. And we asked them not to do that until a little later when we get out of the drought.”
The new lines currently include about 40 customers. The IDA will soon take over water services in the Blacks Creek Church Road area in Madison County, which is now served by the city of Commerce.
“There’s about 45 on that,” said White. “So there’s going to be between 80 and 100 new customers.”
White said the IDA is now looking at installing water lines in the Spratlin Mill area.
“We’re looking at Spratlin Mill Road from Spratlin Pond Subdivision, where the line stops there, over to South Creek,” said White. “We’re going to try to make that tie so we can complete that loop, which will certainly help our fire flow.”
