Vance County Applies For State Aid To Solve Drainage Problems

Posted October 15, 2003 3:54 a.m. EDT

— Vance County is using state money to solve its drainage problem.

The county could receive up to $400,000 to extend water and sewer lines to the neighborhood which now has wells and septic tanks.

The grants will be awarded in February, but only one-third of those who apply will receive money.

The homeowners on Franklin Road said their water is contaminated and blame the county for not acting sooner.
