CHESTER, Vt. (AP) - Voters in the Vermont town of Chester are voting whether to borrow $4 million to upgrade its water system.

The Eagle Times reports (https://bit.ly/1FqWlB4) the project calls for construction of a new water tank and replace more than 3,200 feet of aging pipeline that’s more than 100 years old.

Town Manager David Pisha said the water system is unable to provide adequate fire protection to a majority of areas, including the Ellsworth Memorial Health Center and a high school.

Voting was taking place Tuesday night.
