Posted: Updated:
BEAUFORT CO., SC (WTOC) -

The Beaufort-Jasper Water Authority was awarded  $350,000 in grant funds to help replace 21,000 feet of waterline in Hardeeville.

The BJWSA was awarded the grant money from the Rural Infrastructure Authority.

The project will replace an aging waterline and will improve water pressure and service delivery. It will also enhance development potential in the area.

The project is estimated to cost $1.5 million, and the BJWSA will fund the costs not covered by the grant.

The project will begin near the end of summer, and should take approximately nine months to complete.
