Lompico Water District Hire Roger Browne

Engineer Roger W. Browne of Felton was employed Wednesday by the Lompico county water district to conduct a preliminary water feasability study.

He will determine where a water supply can be found, where water storage is possible, and the cost of a water system. Browne's work is to be completed in 30 days.

Director Carolyn Leonhard said the district board has yet to determine how it will pay for a water system. She indicated the board may attempt to acquire a Davis-Grunsky act loan.

Purchase of the existing Lompico Cooperative Water association system will be necessary, Mrs. Leonhard said. The district directors will meet with association officials at 10 a.m. June 8 at the home of secretary-treasurer FLoyd Raine, who lives on Lake boulevard.

The water district board's regular monthly meeting is scheduled Monday at 9 a.m. in the home of director Rudy Rudell on Lilac road. Verious policies will be established, including how the water system will be run, how bills will be collected, and what water rates will be.
