Plymouth Awarded Grant Money for Safe Drinking Water

The Town of Plymouth has earned some grant money after the Baker-Polito administration announced over $750,000 in awards to five Massachusetts public water suppliers through the drinking water supply protection grant program.

The grant awards will enable water suppliers to protect existing or new wells and surface drinking water supply systems, such as reservoirs and other water bodies.

For Plymouth, $162,500 in grant money was awarded to acquire a 40-acre parcel in order to remove a potential water supply threat posed by an active cranberry bog and improve groundwater quality in the Darby Pond well area.

Since 2004, the DWSP grant program has offered grants to municipal and public water systems to be used for water supply protection and land conservation purposes.
