Neuse Regional Water And Sewer Authority Update

It's been around a year since a new water treatment facility was built in Kinston, and state officials say it is making a difference by improving water levels.

The Neuse Regional Water and Sewer Authority opened in September 2008.

The plant treats water from the Neuse River and then sends it out to several towns in Lenoir and Pitt Counties.

The plant was built because state representatives found that aquifers that were being used before to supply residents with water were beginning to dry up, and they were also worried that saltwater could get into the aquifers.

Now a year later state officials say their plan is working.

The plant cost 140 million dollars to build.
