Manchester seeks loan to help pay for water upgrade

January 22, 1998

Manchester is seeking a $400,000 loan from the state Department of Housing and Community Development to help pay for a $1.5 million project to improve its water supply.

Town Manager David Warner said the loan would be paid back over a 20-year period.

In 1994, the state ordered Manchester to find new sources of drinking water because town springs were vulnerable to contamination. The town received $900,000 toward the project from the state Department of the Environment.

The project, which is nearly complete, includes a new water tank and measures to protect spring sources.


Lineboro: Firefighters from Lineboro and Manchester responded to a chimney fire on Hoffmanville Road at 10: 01 p.m. Tuesday. Units were out two hours and 55 minutes.
