Legislation to help secure a future clean water well for Chester becomes law
The City of Chester is now one step closer to securing access to a new source of clean water after State Senator Terri Bryant’s legislation was signed into law by the Governor Friday afternoon.
Senator Bryant says this bill is critical because Chester is in danger of running out of drinking water sometime in the future.
Senate Bill 950 authorizes the Director of Corrections to execute and deliver to the City of Chester, for $1, specified property, subject to certain conditions. The City of Chester intends to use the newly acquired land to dig a new drinking water well for its residents.
