tapwater 030719SOUTH WILMINGTON – The Village of South Wilmington will receive $162,000 in funding to improve the community’s drinking water quality as part of this year’s state budget for capital infrastructure improvements, State Senator Patrick Joyce (D-Essex) announced Thursday.

“Maintaining a clean, reliable supply of drinking water is crucial for our rural communities,” said Joyce. “This funding comes at a critical time as we continue to mitigate the public health and financial impacts of COVID-19. This investment puts our community on track toward a modernized water infrastructure.”

To make sure every resident has reliable access to safe, high quality water, the Village plans to use the funding to replace water valves, meters and ion exchange equipment. 

“The Village of South Wilmington is receiving $162,000 towards the rebuild of its water treatment plant to ensure safe drinking water for its residents for many years to come,” said South Wilmington Mayor Richard Alderson. “The Village is very appreciative of this funding as the unexpected cost was a severe hardship on the residents of South Wilmington.”
