The town of Grantsville is receiving $1,130,000 in stimulus money for improvements in the town's water or sewage system.

Harrisville will be receiving $220,000.

US Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack announced the selection of more than $615.8 million in water and environmental projects that are being funded immediately with federal funds.

The projects will help provide safe drinking water and improved wastewater treatment systems for rural towns and communities in 34 states.

Requests for improvements in Grantsville's water and sewage systems have been ongoing for several years.

The funding will be allocated to 193 projects and create or save an estimated 12,385 jobs, according to the US Department of Agriculture.

USDA Rural Development's Water and Environmental Program provides loans and grants to ensure that the necessary investments are made in water and wastewater infrastructure to deliver safe drinking water and protect the environment in rural areas.
