It's been a hot topic for months...
What to do with the water woes at Wells Island Road. In November the City of Shreveport shut off water to Analytical Logging, the company who supplied water to the neighborhood. Analytical has not paid their bill in at least twenty months.
"From no fault of their own Analytical put them in this position. We have no business drinking minerals in water. It's not right," Caddo Parish Commissioner Michael Williams said.
There's 22 companies and 13 homes. Two of which would not have water if the Parish cut them off.
They all are in Williams' district and he's been passionate about getting them help, he even tried to get the Parish to pick up the $265,000 tab with money in the gas and oil fund.
However, commissioners believe it's not a cookie-cutter answer. One major construction company simply does not want a line at all, and two only need a filtration system.
Commissioner Matthew Linn believes a better idea is to use services taxpayers already put money into. "A lot of the people who just need water, we could see about the Caddo Community Action Agency drilling them a well," Linn said.
Even if the Parish did run a line, the people would need to tap into it with a certified plumber.
"At the end of the day that would cost even more than drilling a well," Linn said.
Time is ticking, the deadline to have the project started, in place, or finished is June 20th.
