The city of Charleston is advertising for bids on a planned project to replace water pipes in three sections of the city.
The work will be funded by a $300,000 appropriation to the city from the 2020 Mississippi Legislature.
Charleston Mayor Sedrick Smith, who was joined Tuesday by local state Rep. Tommy Reynolds to look over a project map, said the project will entail replacing decaying city water lines along the entirety of Dorothy and Depot streets and along a portion of Walnut Street.
After that work is completed, asphalt will be laid to repair street damage caused by the project, Smith added.
The appropriation was a line item added to a conference report on Senate Bill 2969, the budget of the Mississippi Department of Finance and Administration.
