Graham Announces a $1.456 Million Water Project for Marlboro County

WASHINGTON- U.S. Senator Lindsey Graham (R-South Carolina) today announced the U.S. Department of Agriculture has awarded a $643,500 grant and approved a $813,000 loan to Wallace Water Company in Marlboro County. The funds will be used to provide an extension of waterlines and to purchase water from Richmond, NC. The project will connect the existing water system in Marlboro County with the system in Richmond, and will serve northern Marlboro County. “This project will help Wallace more effectively serve the people of Marlboro County,” said Graham. “It will increase their ability to provide a reliable source of water to residents. This money improves lives, and makes the area more attractive for economic development.”
