Jackson County Supervisors Debate Water Pipeline

The U-S Army Corps of Engineers will study a proposed industrial water supply pipeline on the coast. Jackson County supervisors want to know if they should continue with the 50 (m) million dollar project.

 Supervisors authorized a 190-thousand dollar study of the project yesterday. The county's share of the cost is 47-thousand-500 dollars. The pipeline project was authorized by a previous board of supervisors in 1993.

 The current board brought the project to a halt last year. The only phase that has been completed was the six (m) million dollar intake station that was built on the Pascagoula River, and the laying of pipe from the intake station to the county's existing industrial water pipeline.

While supervisors have expressed an interest in continuing the project, they may scale it down.
