WISCASSET – A water district in Wiscasset will receive more than $4 million in federal money to replace century-old water lines.

U.S. Department of Agriculture Rural Development State Director Virginia Manuel says the money will help the Wiscasset Water District make sure more than 1,000 residents have access to clean, safe drinking water.

The USDA says water lines in the area are in poor condition which decreases water quality and makes them susceptible to costly main breaks.

The district serves Wiscasset, Woolwich and part of Edgecomb.
