Lee County and Tupelo Officials in Water Dispute

LEE CO./TUPELO, Miss. (Miss.) – After months of discussions and citizen’s concerns, Tupelo officials are contemplating their next move involving the ¬†North Lee County Water Association.

North Lee Water Association is planning to accept a $8.9 million loan from the federal government to drill wells and water tanks which Tupelo officials are not happy about.

On Tuesday, both sides will appear before the Permit Board of the Mississippi Department of Environmental Quality in Jackson to dispute the situation.
