Water Improvements on the Way

Contaminated well water will soon be a thing of the past for rural residents in Martin County.

The U.S. Department of Agriculture and Rural Development presented Martin County and sewer department officials with a ceremonial $6,400,000 check at a groundbreaking ceremony. It will be used for phase one of a new distribution water system to be built in the south central part of the county.

Taxpayers will foot the bill to pay back the loan.
