The County water project has begun water line construction for Phase 1A in the Sandy Creek Township area. Recently the County signed an agreement to purchase water from the City of Henderson which will allow construction to begin in Phases 2A and 2B where your property is located. It is anticipated that construction could begin in your area within the next 6 months or less.
The Water District Board is encouraging everyone who is interested in having County water and who resides in these phases of the project to sign up for water taps right away. The discounted tap fee remains at $125, but it is set to increase significantly to approximately $750 per tap after construction begins, and could be as high as $2,000 or more after construction is complete. NOW is the time to sign up!
If you have questions concerning the water district project, please contact the Vance County Planning and Development Department at 252-738-2080, which is located at 156 Church Street Suite 3, Henderson, North Carolina 27536 (next door to the Sheriff’s Office in the Vance County Courthouse). Information is also available on the County’s website, www.vancecounty.org.
If you have not signed up for water yet, NOW is the time to do so in order to increase the likelihood that water lines can be installed on your road. If you have already signed up to participate in the water system, please encourage your friends and neighbors to do so as soon as possible. Remember – there must be enough sign-ups to justify the cost of running water lines down each road. The more sign-ups there are, the greater the opportunity for water reaching your residence.
