The Wicomico County Council approved a resolution that said the homes in the Morris Mill area should be connected immediately to new water lines when they become available.

The move follows the discovery of the chemical TCE in some of the private wells two years ago.

The county council has gotten a $1.5 million grant and a low interest loan of nearly $1 million to assist in building the new water lines and water tower.
