VAN HORN - Work crews in Van Horn are well underway on a big project to upgrade the water system in town.
Officals say recently, a 12 inch PVC pipeline was installed that stretches from the well field at the airport, three miles into town at booster stations.
From here, work is ongoing to install an electronic monitoring system and more firehydrants.
It's all part of a bigger community development project officals say is critical to the town.
After the work is done on the new monitoring system, the plan is to install a new water well.
Once that is complete, it will help to interconnect the wells to back up the systems.
