The Logan County Commission, along with Zach Browning from the Logan County Public Service District, held another public meeting on Tues., May 20 for the Big Harts Phase II Water Extension Project. Phase II has been approved, and the application for a $1.5 million small city block grant will be sent in today.

The finished project (which is marked in the map above) will connect to an 8-inch main located along County Route 19 in Lincoln County and generally follow County Route 19/3 and Delta Route 3 (in Lincoln County) and County Routes 3, 5, 3/16, 5/1, 5/8, 702/32, 5/7 and 5/3 in a southerly direction in Logan County.

“This will be real beneficial for the people,” Commission President Danny Godby said. “That’s an area that really needs water.” After the completion of this project, it is estimated that 98 percent of Logan County will have access to public water.
