State loans fund $1.1M in water lines

Conover will use $1.1 million in state loans to replace 15,000 feet of water lines in an effort to improve water quality firefighting capabilities throughout the city.

This week, city leaders approved two projects that will serve about 230 water customers along N.C. 16 North and in Conover's northeast and southwest areas. To fund the projects, the city will spend about $22,000 from its water and sewer fund to go along with two zero-interest loans from the N.C. Department of Environment and Natural Resources.
