Le-Ax calls off extension project
(WOUB) - Residents in Hocking County who wanted Le-Ax Water service are out of luck.

That's according to Le-Ax General Manager John Simpson, who says the board of directors decided not to move ahead with an extension project.

The board cited lack of public support as the main reason.

Le-Ax held a drive for additional Hocking County residents but too few potential new customers signed up.

The district is turning its back on a loan from the Ohio Rural Development Partnership.

Simpson says there is no "financially feasible" way to proceed with the project.

Residents who have already paid tap fees will be given a refund.
