After years of planning, water plant construction to begin
Published: December 3,2013
JACKSON COUNTY — Officials says construction will begin soon on a $9.2-million drinking water plant that is part of a project, almost 20 years in the making, to use water from the Pascagoula River to supply businesses and homes in northeast Jackson County.
The Sun Herald reports the county has partnered with the Jackson County Utility Authority that will run the plant and distribute water it produces to homes and businesses in the Helena community and areas north.
The total cost is $12 million, with the final $5 million coming to the county in increments as the plant is under construction.
The plant will have the capacity to product one million gallons a day and be located near the intersection of Mississippi 63 and Mississippi 613.
