Water reform

    Georgetown, Del., will borrown $5 million for a new water system. The decision was made last night when 80 residents and corporate property owners voted on plans for the project.

    The town’s water pipe connections are more than a half century old, the Assocaited Press reports, so $2.1 million will replace those, and $1.7 will upgrade the inflow and infiltration system. Money has also been set aside — $1.5 million — for a well and treatment facility.
