A sizable grant has been awarded to the Driftwood Borough for renovations to its public water system.

The funds total $203,965, and will be used to create a new groundwater source of potable water through reconstruction of the filter plant in Nanny Run, and installation of new filtering sand at three existing filter beds at the slow-sand filtration plant.

Driftwood Borough Mayor Joe Williams confirmed the grant, and credited the borough’s previous work on the system and partnership with the Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) for the award. The borough has also worked with the Cameron County Economic Development department and Nittany Engineering throughout the improvement process.
