WATER SYSTEM HISTORY, 01/25/2015:
The town of Whitsett issued its first ever monthly water bills for the 35 homes in phase I on Wednesday, October 3, 2012. Before August 2012, most of the town used well-water. After a contamination scare due to a leaking underground gasoline tank, the town decided it needed to investigate getting the public a community water system.
It took seven years, a 24-inch pipeline, and a $750,000 community block grant, but 35 homes in Whitsett now have public water. Whitsett plans to hook up the rest of the town as soon as it can get the money to expand the public water system.
