Somerton Water Woes

Posted: Updated:

Two sub-division maybe high and dry in the coming years if they don't find a viable water source. In an article by Bajo El Sol the sub-divisions in question currently call the county home; the rest in a county island east of the city of Somerton off of County 15th. The Orange Grove and La Mesa sub-divisions have been asking for the city to connect them to their water system. The city of Somerton has contracted a consultant to find solutions to the problem; according to PACE Engineering the city could connect with the sub-division at a cost of almost four million dollars. If the city went the other way by upgrading their well system they are still looking at close to three million. The city has expressed interest in annexing the sub-division, but aren't willing to pay to connect any services.
