New water lines will be installed in the Lincoln Terrace neighborhood in Madison Township.

Lincoln Terrace includes 46 homes on Illinois Avenue, Charvid Drive, and Terrace Drive off of Grace Street.

Lonnie McGhee, President of McGhee's Technical Water Services in Bellville, told the Richland County Commissioners Thursday morning the Lincoln Terrace Community Water Association asked the Madison Water District for help in getting funding for the project. 

McGhee says the existing water lines were installed in the 1950's and have deteriorated badly, causing water to be lost because of a leak noone can find, and creating water quality problems.

He says the Ohio E-P-A has ranked the project #1 on its priority list for funding.

Grant applications to cover the $265,000 construction cost, and the $100,000 cost of connecting the lines to the homes, are being submitted to the Ohio Development Services Agency.

The water lines should be installed by the end of the year, with the hook-ups completed early next year.
