Residents of Harris Lord Cemetery Road who petitioned the Jackson County Water and Sewerage Authority for county water will be asked to put their money where their mouths are. And if they do, the authority appears prepared to spend up to $300,000 to deliver the water.
Ed Vollrath, who lives on the road, appeared before the authority at its May 12 meeting with a petition signed by 11 residents seeking water. According to Vollrath, the quality of well water in the area is poor, forcing a number of residents to purchase water for drinking.
“We need water, that’s what we need,” said Vollrath, “all of us, from the railroad tracks back to my house.”
