Tin City Residents Object
To Wallace's Plans For Well
Tin City residents have strongly
protested plans by Wallace to locate
a well in their small community on
N.C. 11 south of Wallace.
About 20 Tin City area residents
expressed their opposition to the
Wallace Board of Commissioners
Thursday night. They fear a large
well in their area will lower the level
in their wells, forcing them to take
expensive steps to retain water
The board delayed action on
taking up the option it has on a
potential well site. A special meeting
on the subject was called for 7 p.m.
Thursday at Town Hall.
Wallace's option on the site ex
pires April 23.
The town's wells are all within a
small area and draw water from the
same acquifer. Engineers have
recommended Wallace drill wells in
a different area.
"1 get right nervous when you say
you're going to take my water and
sell it back to me. I'm just as nervous
as a cat in a room full of rocking
chairs," Kenneth Blanchard of Tin
City told the board.
"I don't know why you don't go
out another half-mile and find higher
land. I'm surprised you want to put it
in a mud hole anyway," Blanchard
"You're on the right track but you
haven't gone out far enough. .
.There is a leaking gasoline storage
tank 100 yards from your site."
Nora Boney asked. "If my well
goes dry, how am I going to get
Commissioner Charles Blanchard
said. "If we cause your well to go
dry. we'll drill you a deeper well."
"Can I get a written statement?"
Charles Blanchard answered,
Town Attorney Richard Burrows
said the board could not make any
binding promise. "There are many
reasons for a well to go dr^," he
said. "And one board can't bind a
future board to such a promise."
David Criser of Henry von Oesen
& Associates of Wilmington said
there are two acquifers in the area.
One lies between 100 and 140 feet
beneath the surface and is 50 to 70
feet thick. The other is 220 feet be
neath the surface and is 100 to 120
feet thick. He said engineers think
they are separate aquifers, so what
happens to one won't affect the
other. He noted that might be in
He said wells spaced 4.000 feet
apart would not affect one another.
The minimum spacing, he added,
would be 2.000 feet, which might
lower w tter level in other wells by
1'iantation Acres development
between Wallace and Tin City is
>>????? 2.000 feet from the proposed
w ell site. Criser said 19 private wells
are within 1,900 feet of the site and
of each other.
Laying a 14-inch water line
another mile would cost an estimated
$106,000. if the town board decided
to seek a site further from the
developed area southeast of
The town needs to increase its well
capacity to be certain of supplying
the needs of its biggest customer,
the J.P. Stevens Co. plants. If the
company plants can't get enough
water they would have to close.
The company, which is the second
largest employer inthe vicinity, buys
about $205,000 worth of water a year
from the town. For comparison.
Town Administrator Robert Hyatt
said, property taxes bring the town
$347,000 a year.
Criser said Wallace needs to drill a
well every two years until it has five
