Dare County is proposing to expand the water system on Roanoke Island to the unincorporated areas currently not served by the Dare County Water System. The proposed expansion areas include Wanchese and areas outside of the Manteo Town limits. The Roanoke Island Fire Department has requested the expansion of the water system to greatly improve the level of fire protection on the island. The proposal would require that all improved properties connect to the system.
Details of the costs associated with the mandatory connections will be explained at a meetings held on Tuesday, June 19th at 7:00 p.m. in the Auditorium at Roanoke Island Festival Park. There will also be a question and answer session after the presentation. For more information call the Dare County Water Department at 475-5601.
