Thanks to federal funding, the town of Pax in Fayette County is one step closer to breaking ground on a much needed water project.
The total cost for it $2 Million dollars and the town recently received a 200-thousand dollar grant. The project will provide 52 homes in the Willis Branch area with public sewer service to help prevent the local water shed from getting contaminated.The towns mayor says the project will provide a great economic boost for the town.
“We need to develop that intersection I think that’s going to greatly help the town to have sewer infrastructure on that side of the turnpike which is outside of the flood area which definitely impact whether people want to move into the town or not,” Mayor William Hughes said.
The project will also upgrade the existing town treatment facility which will benefit more than 160 homes and increase capacity for future expansion.
