XTO Energy might fund an infrastructure upgrade to Belmont County's sewer system

As a customer of the Belmont County sanitary sewer district, Texas-based XTO Energy is talking with county commissioners about a possible infrastructure project, the Times Leader reports. The proposed project would include "the installation of about four miles of new waterline, a new pumping station, a power upgrade, fire hydrants, gas valves, air release and pressure reducing valves, and the connection of 60 homes to the line." The project would provide the company with its needed increased water flow, but the waterlines would remain the property of the county, the article said.
