Uniontown Water and Sewage System Upgrade on the Way


By George McDonald

From the CBS 8 West Alabama Newsroom-- The water and sewage systems in the city of Uniontown will be getting a multi-million dollar upgrade.

Congresswoman Terri Sewell announced 4-point-8 million dollars in U-S-D-A funding for the project today.

City officials say the city has been plagued with sewage problems for more than a decade.

Sewell says federal, state and local officials all worked together to secure the funding.

"Today's a great day, not only for the citizens of Uniontown but for the state of Alabama. Government worked well today," she said.

The project is not only expected to improve the quality of life for residents-- it's also expected to help the city recruit new industry.
