KEEDYSVILLE - Keedysville town officials passed a resolution Monday night to create a joint water system with the town of Boonsboro, although the cost of the project is still unknown.
The proposal follows recent difficulty of providing water to the town of Boonsboro.
Although Boonsboro has several water sources of its own, it also relies on Keedysville's system, said Assistant Mayor Kenneth Brandenburg.
However, Keedysville has had trouble pumping enough water to Boonsboro, Brandenburg said.
The Keedysville Town Council Monday night approved the formation of a regional water system for Boonsboro and Keedysville. The project would link the water systems from the two towns, thereby increasing water flow, said Brandenburg.
Water flow from the new system would increase from 145 gallons per minute to 300 gallons per minute, Brandenburg said.
Brandenburg could not provide a cost for the project. "It's on the drawing boards now. We don't know for sure," said Brandenburg.
