Grantsville's latest $1,388,000 water improvement project is nearly completed, including the installation of an additional 300,000 gallon water storage tank, new lines to Minnie Hamilton Health System that will help fire protection, and other improvements to the town's delivery system.
Grantsville Mayor Curt Garretson was presented with a certificate by State USDA Director Bobby Lewis during a ceremony Wednesday in recognition of the projects completion.
The Grantsville water system supplies water to the town, the Pleasant Hill PSD and the Mt. Zion PSD, representing about 1,400 customers.
