BROOKSVILLE - A recent public inquiry workshop provided residents of eastern Hernando County with an overview of proposed improvements and expansion to the East Hernando Water System.
Residents raised questions and concerns prompting the county to create a webpage (www.HernandoCounty.us/utils/projects/) containing additional details about the project.
The site contains an overview of the project, a multimedia presentation, impact study, a map of the proposed site and links to the planning and zoning commission and board of county commission calendars.
The East Hernando Water System is responsible for the treatment and distribution of about 600,000 gallons per day of drinking water for more than 2,800 residential and commercial accounts in Hernando County.
The new system will have the potential to pump up to 4.8 million gallons of water per day to meet water use needs as the area develops.
