Lynda Martin drinks bottled water with her granddaughter Izabelle Hinrichs, 3, Wednesday, June 29, 2016 at their Bond Street home in Raleigh. "I won't make coffee with it. It tastes bad and smells like sewer," said Martin of her well water. The Trawick Dale neighborhood, near the intersection of Bond Street and Trawick Road, is surrounded by the City of Raleigh but fought annexation and remains in the county. Pesticide contamination was discovered in some of the resident's wells in 2012, and now some are working to try and get the commissioners to fund city water lines so residents can get clean drinking water.
