GERING, Neb. (AP) - The western Nebraska city of Gering has agreed to let the neighboring town of Terrytown connect to its municipal water system.

The Scottsbluff Star-Herald reports (https://bit.ly/1gXO4uJ ) that the agreement was approved by the North Platte Natural Resource District.

Officials say the agreement will mean an enormous financial savings in potential mitigation costs for Terrytown after too-high levels of arsenic were found in Terrytown’s water wells.

Officials had estimated Terrytown might have to spend more than $1 million to come up with an alternate water plan. The new agreement with Gering will cost Terrytown a one-time fee of $56,000.
