Raleigh Residents To Find Out If City Will Pay For Water

Posted April 14, 2003 12:47 p.m. EDT

— People who live near Raleigh's sewage plant will find out Tuesday if the city will pick up their water bill.

The plant was fined last year for overspraying waste on nearby crop fields. Tests turned up toxins in wells near the plant.

Crews built a line to pump city water to the affected homes.

The city manager is recommending the homeowners get a free connection and free water.

The council is expected to vote Tuesday.
