New Hanover County has started extending water and sewer lines to the 421 Corridor. But the project’s twelve million dollar price tag has some county commissioners seeking alternative funding measures.
To fund the infrastructure development along the 421 Corridor, county managers are looking into federal grants to help lessen the burden on New Hanover.
Mayor Bill Saffo suggests private investment. As an example, he cites Duke Energy’s work to run water lines to the Flemington sites, which have contaminated wells.
