CRAB ORCHARD - Crab Orchard City Commission voted Thursday in favor of a resolution to accept a $190,000 water/wastewater grant from Kentucky Infrastructure Authority.
John Kuhn, city water and wastewater supervisor, said the grant will be used to improve erosion control in the sewage lagoon off Cedar Street and loop dead-end water lines, as well as increase the diameter of water lines.
"The lines are too small to serve the population there," said Kuhn. He said the new six-inch pipes will improve water flow, which in turn will provide better fire protection.
