Albany-- Work is underway to lay water lines to homes in North Albany along the Lee County line. Projects Manager Larry Marchbanks taking measurements on Dunbar Lane for the next extension of Albany Water, Gas and Light services.

Water lines will be laid on North Jefferson Street, Philema Road, Dunbar Lane, and Lovers Lane.

The construction project, called Phase Two in Water Gas and Light's current expansion, will begin soon.

"It's very important that we provide to all the citizens, both of Albany and Dougherty County, as much as we can," said WG&L Spokesperson Lori Farkas. "It's a voluntary thing, everyone does not have to hook up, but I can't imagine not wanting to hook up to the system."

Phase One of W,G and L's expansion in the Old Pretoria Road area is complete. 70 of a potential 150 customers have hooked onto the city water system. Phase Three would lay water lines in the Blue Springs and Lilly Pond Road area.

That project is scheduled to be finished by late 2004.
