People who live in the Neuse Crossing subdivision say their water is full of sand and smells bad. Tests show the water is undrinkable, because of high levels of minerals like manganese and calcium.
The Raleigh City Council voted Wednesday to provide the subdivision with water and sewer service. Neighbors are ecstatic.
"A lot of people say it's a Christmas present to themselves to get the water," says homeowner Stephanie Massengale.
Once Neuse Crossing homeowners pay up, they should be getting city water by December 4.
