Home development doesn’t qualify for new water lines


Leaky pipes have interrupted water service to a Lake Hartwell subdivision in Anderson County, but the water supplier doesn’t believe the leaks can currently justify new infrastructure.  The request from the Seminole Point subdivision was an item of new business yesterday for the board of directors of the Pioneer Rural Water District at Oakway.  Office records show in recent years one major line break and smaller leaks, but they,  in the opinion of General Manager Terry Pruitt, don’t justify replacing the water lines.  The subdivision also request fire hydrants and Pioneer has determined it can lay one hydrant at the front of the development, at Seminole and Ocala.
