One million gallons of water will soon be flowing to Brunswick County residents. Friday, Brunswick Regional Water and Sewer H2Go held its ceremonial ground breaking on a one million gallon elevated water storage tank off of Highway 17 in Leland.

The project will meet state regulations by providing a half-day supply of elevated water available to county residents at all times.

H2Go director Bob Jones said, “It will provide adequate water pressure throughout our system to prevent low pressures during the summer months, which we experienced over the past several years. It also provides the fire flow that’s required by the state, and it will also help reduce insurance rates in the future.”

The 200 foot tower is expected to be complete by June of next year.

As an added bonus, H2Go hopes cell phone providers will want to install antennas on the tower to allow for better coverage in the area.

New Hanover County’s newest school, Castle Hayne Elementary, is officially open. Even though students have filled the halls since August, Friday marked the school’s official dedication.

Board members, administrators, faculty, staff and students gathered to celebrate. Students provided the entertainment, and guided tours of the shiny new school were also available.

Parents said the school is a big hit with the kids. “He loves going to school. He comes home and says he loves going to school,” said Castle Hayne parent Lisa Lanier. “It’s a lot easier to wake him up in the morning when he wants to get up.”

Each classroom comes fully equipped with state of the art technology and computers.

The school is built for 600 students grades K through 5. The 60-acre campus also allows for plenty of fun, with playgrounds and multiple sports fields.
