Oconee County Commissioners Agree to Five-Year Water Contract with Walton County

Act(s) of God Included

In a split vote, the Oconee County Board of Commissioners last night approved a five-year contract to sell Walton County half a million gallons per day of water pumped from Oconee County wells.

Commissioner Chuck Horton, who had said earlier he was inclined to vote against the contract but was willing to hear arguments in its favor, said last night he was concerned because the utility department had changed its position on wells.
