Isle of Wight is on the hook for its water deal. How much? Roughly a quarter of a billion dollars over the next 40 years.
That’s a tremendous increase of the $150 million figure previously cited by county officials and oft-reported in the Smithfield Times.
And all this pays for the county getting six times as much water as it currently uses. Eventually, the county will get 12 times as much water as it currently uses.
