JEFFERSON COUNTY, Ohio - The people of the Bradley community fought for a big change in their  water and sewer service, and it looks like they will finally get it.
It's something that did not happen overnight, but it has people of this community located outside of Smithfield excited. They filed petitions and pushed for a water and sewer system to be put in their neighborhoods for more than a decade.
"Right now a lot of the customers are on wells," said Mike Eroshevich of the Water and Sewer District. "Some of the customers are currently on a water line, an existing private line. That line will be replaced by a new line and will run out further and tie in some folks that are on well water."
The project will begin sometime this summer.
"We're really excited about that," Jefferson County Commissioner Tom Gentile said. "We're going to be getting Jefferson County to about 70 new customers and to be able to make this extension to the Bradley project possible because we did the Brilliant Booster Station."
Bradley residents said it will help them save a lot of money on water, and potentially save lives and property as they will finally get fire hydrants.
"Because of the size of the line, they will also have fire protection and then they'll become customers of the Jefferson County Water and Sewer District," Eroshevich said. "It's a really good project and those folks have been waiting a long time to get our water."
Jefferson County commissioners were happy to hear several bids for the project, and they came in well below the county engineer's estimate. Cost for the project is about $1.2 million.
