Michael J. Hipple, chairman of the James City County Board of Supervisors recently spoke to the Kiwanis Club of Colonial Capital about the current plan to increase water supply to the county in the future. The project will construct a treatment plant that will draw water from the Chickahominy River on the bank of the river near the Riverfront park. Hipple said this new source will reduce the need for ground water and also reduce the potential for having to buy water from Newport News. The board will vote on funding the project within the next few weeks. Pictured above are Club member Jim Simpson, Hipple and Club President Elect, Larry Shoberg.
