The Normantown-Stumptown water project in Gilmer County is still lagging with a shortage of about 50% of the needed customers to move the project ahead.

The Public Service District needs 167 customers.

The $2.9 million project involves the construction of 22 miles of water line, which would also service the Cedar Creek community.

A spokesperson for the PSD said the $100 hook-up fee was reduced to a payment plan, to assist those on fixed incomes.

The large amount of rainfall this year may have given residents a false sense that the water table would sustain wells and not go dry.
