BATON ROUGE - The Department of Health and Hospitals' Office of Public Health has awarded $1.5 million to Gramercy through the State's Drinking Water Revolving Loan Fund Program.

The loan will help the system improve and update the community's drinking water system.

Assistant Secretary for Public Health, J.T. Lane said it's imperative that all Louisiana residents have access to safe drinking water.

The state says Gramercy will use the money for many improvements to the town's aging water system. They include: new transfer/backwash pumping station, new sludge pumps, new filter media and drains, an air backwash system, a new control system, a canopy for the filters and pipe gallery, replacement of old piping and valves, a new operations building at the water treatment plant and painting of the water system's existing structures.
