Derby gets EPA grant for sewer improvements

DERBY — The Environmental Protection Agency has awarded $970,000 to Derby for improvements to its sewer system.

The funding is to help the city's water infrastructure so the city can "provide adequate wastewater service for current and future homes in Derby," EPA Region 7 Administrator Karl Brooks said in a news release.

Specifically, the funding will pay for the construction of approximately 7,050 feet of sewer pipe and 17 manholes.
