Water closer

We were pleased to hear, last week, that the long wait for water on Lower Mud River Road in Lincoln County is getting nearer and nearer to being over. At the Thursday, September 7, 2017 regular session of the Lincoln County Commission in Hamlin came word that the bid opening for the project is set to happen this week. Once the bids are opened, the Lincoln PSD board will likely move to award the project.

We commend the Lincoln County Commission, the Lincoln PSD, the various funding agencies, and the patient future customers for their devotion to this project, their patience, and their determination to get it done. The timing is not ideal; work can start on these projects a few short months after the bid is awarded; however, it appears that might coincide with the winter months in this instance, therefore possibly pushing groundbreaking to next spring and better weather.

Nonetheless, the citizens along Lower Mud are now closer than ever to securing a reliable and safe water supply. We are confident everything has been done, is being done, and will be done to expedite the process as much as possible.
