WASHINGTON (WTVA) - The federal government is providing money to help some local water systems.

One of those systems is the Cason Water District in Monroe County.  It is receiving a nearly $2 million grant and a more than $2 million loan from U.S. Department of Agriculture.

That money will help pay for a booster station, an elevated storage tank and water lines so more than 1,600 customers can get their water from the Tombigbee River.

The Ingomar Water Association in Union County is getting a $903,000 loan from the USDA so 40-year-old water meters can be replaced with radio-read meters.

That money will also help the association replace some water lines for its more than 900 customers.
