CHARLES TOWN, W.Va. - Some neighborhoods with poor water lines should be getting some relief soon after the Charles Town Council voted Monday night to hire contractors to work with city workers to install new lines.
City Manager Jane Arnett said some areas are served by only a three-quarter-inch pipe and will be replaced by two-inch to six-inch pipes.
The three-quarter inch pipe does not allow for an adequate water supply, she said.
"There are complaints that if a neighbor turns his shower on you can't flush your toilet," Arnett said.
The town council expects contractors, who have been working on installing new water meters throughout town, to be working on the project for about four weeks.
