Grant will help save water supply

Congratulations to the Altoona Water Authority on its success in obtaining a Department of Conservation and Natural Resources grant to acquire 2,000-plus acres to protect our water supply.

This will preserve a large area of watershed land around Kittanning Run, which is now a non-useable, highly contaminated stream, but when treated using on site treatment technologies, has the potential to be a significant source of our future water supply.
