Spring Hope Gets Grant to Improve Water Supply

— A Nash County town's water woes could be going down the drain.

In October, WRAL reported on water problems in Spring Hope. For several weeks, residents had to boil their water after high levels of fecal coliform were detected in a public well.

Spring Hope has accepted a $260,000 state grant to build a new well. The project should begin later this year.
