Alapaha - A South Georgia town received $153,000.00 for sewage improvements.

Congressman Jack Kingston presented the check to the city of Alapaha. The money comes from the Georgia Department of Community Affairs and will be used to upgrade the city's wastewater treatment facility. The current oxidation pond is not able to process the heavy load of wastewater due to sludge buildup, insufficient settling, and lack of oxygenation.

In September, the city got a $49,000.00 Immediate Threat Danger to make some improvements to the facility. This additional upgrades should bring it back to full compliance with E.P.D. standards.
