By MARY IIAZE Telegraph Staff Writer JERSEYVILLE - With funds earmarked by the Farm and Home Administration (PHA) for a $1,680,000 loan for construction of water lines in a 162 square mile area in rural Jersey County the new!/ incorporated not-for profit Jersey County Water Co. awaits only a final commitment from the FHA before proceeding with final engineering and planning. Tom Benz of the area FHA office told the company officials in a Thursday nig'if meeting that he has b^en instructed to prepare the loan documents sinc<; all requirements for the loan have been met. . Meanwhile, the new water company is continuing u accept commitments from property owners in the s •• •• vice area for tap on to the now water system at $50 oer tap on with $10 to be paid at the time the sign up for water service is made. This includes those who reside in the Rosedale and an area west of Jerseyville whore efforts were initiated a few years ago to construct a water system under a federal grant. No progress has been made to date in securing the grant in these areds. However, these areas will be included only if sufficient tap- ons can be secured before final planning stages begin. If the required number of users are not found in these areas, those who sign up now will get their money back if the added areas are net incorporated in the final planning, the company's attorney George "Butch" Wittman said. The proposed new water system at a total construction cost of the new water system is set at $1,750,000 with bulk to come from the $1,680,000 loan and . the remaining $70,000 from the tap on fees. The water company was Incorporated with Louis Stumpe as president, Larry Davis as vice-chairman anl Ethel Gerbig as treasurer to serve on a temporary basis until a permanent bo'ird of direcors is elected at a public meeting set for Oct. 12. Under the proposed by-laws which are expected to be adopted late this month seven directors will be elected: Two for one year, two for two years and three for three years. The FHA loan will be at 5 per cent yearly interest with amortization over 40 years to be repaid from earnings of the water company. The company has received a financial proposal by the Alton Water Co. to furnish 'he water. No contract hs» be u n negotiated since the company is awaiting a quotation from the Jerseyville wa'er department from which they have received a letter indicating a willingness to discuss the rate since tiie Jerseyville system can furnish the water. The Alton Water Co. would • allow the new county system to hook onto an eight inch water main at the intersection of Rtes. 267 and 67-111 north of Godfrey. As proposed the new water system would furnish water to rural customers west of Rte. 267 not currently sermJ by public water service as well as north to the Jerseyville Water Department Service and as far as Marquette State Park where the Department of Conservation has already signed up. Indications that the park service will also accept the water service but must make engineering studies of its own to determine where it wou.d need the service and how many service areas would be needed. ARIANS SUNDAY GUARANTEED SUNRISE FRESH KROGER PRODUCE! Of the more than 200 of water line proposed in preliminary planning, 8i miles of it would be three-inch lines with about 30 per cent of three inch mains and the balance in six-inch lines with water pressure to be maintained at 25 to 80-pounds p.;r square inch. Pressure would be maintained from two 200,000 storage tanks one to be located in the Ottervillp- Dow area and the other in the Delhi area. When the Jersey County Water Co. becomes operative it will be the second largest such service in the state. John Watwood, of the Centraiia engineering firm of Watwood & Pyle, said. Wittman emphasized that the Jersey County Water Co. is different from those such as the Fosterburg Water Co. which has recently received its funding through grants from various government agencies. The Jersey company wei.^ the loan route because more funds are available for loans thus making the water service a reality in a compar'tivciy short time. If current schedules ave met, Wittman said, construction contracts will be 'et next spring with construction to begin in the summer. This is a good record for the steering committee, he said, since they only started work on the project in late March of this year. Initially, the new water system is expected to use about 210,000 gallons of water night. ALL THIS APTO TOP VALUE STAMPS TOO! SHOP KBOGEK!!

Not only is adequate water supply needed for the rapidly expanding Jersey County area, but it is increasingly difficult, to obtain a supply "of pure water, Wittman emphasized. A Farm Bureau survey in which 25 wells were selected at random in the area indicated that of these 25 wolls j& ASpringman PAINT Godfrey, III. Ph. 488-3431 18 were found to be contaminated in one way or another. With the increased use of commercial fertilizers by tn> agricultural interests as well as (ho influx of new residents in subdivision areas and increasing mobile homes in th,,> county, there will be less and less uncontaminated water available, the report said. Thus the new proposed water area not only will sot an added convenience but will also receive an almost unlimited supply of pu^e drinking water, Wittrrvin pointed out.
