NEWPORT-Newport Utilities board of directors looked ahead
to the extension of services to Del Rio citizens on Tuesday when they
unanimously approved a recommendation by Topper Allen, NU Water Department
Manager, to extend their current project an additional 500 feet.
"In doing so, we'll picked up four more
customers," said Allen, "but more importantly, we'll then be at the
junction of Midway Road and Blue Mill Road. This will allow for the better
possibility of extension of services up both roads at a future date."
The board also approved the purchased of four vehicles
and a supply of underground primary cable.
