Water systems get state funds
Omaha World-Herald

LINCOLN — The Health and Hu­man Services Department has awarded 84 Nebraska public wa­ter systems a total of $344,800 for security fencing, alarms, light­ing, reinforced doors, locks, generators, chlorinators and other equipment.
Most of the grants were between $4,000 and $5,000. The money comes from the Drinking Water State Revolving Fund. Joann Schaefer, chief medical officer and director of the division of public health, said the generators mean that during nat­ural disasters, water systems will have power to provide water to consumers.
