Appomattox Has New Water Line

Reporter: Sally Delta

Appomattox, VA - Water is now flowing through Appomattox County's new waterline.

The project took just over a year to complete and was activated on Friday. Surface water is now flowing in from Campbell County Utilities and services 1,000 connections. It's replacing the old well connections in the town. So far, the interim town manager has only heard positive reviews.

"I've asked numerous people across town if they've noticed a difference and the only comment I've gotten so far is, 'My soap lathers up a lot better than it used to'," said Bill Gillespie.

It will take at least two weeks before the meters are finally set up and working properly.
