HEATH SPRINGS – A third phase of waterline improvements can begin, with a $500,000 Community Development Block Grant recently awarded to the town.
Heath Springs Town Council voted months ago to pay for engineering for the project, in hopes that the grant funding would come through, Mayor Ann Taylor said.
The S.C. Department of Commerce announced the grant award on Aug. 3.
The project will replace aging waterlines in the east side of town. That includes Northside Circle, and Hart, Salem, East, Clark, Ridge, Elder and Liberty streets, Taylor said.
