A $3.4 million federal project to supply water to the village of Kasaan on Prince of Wales Island has been completed.

According to the Alaska office of the U.S. Department of Agriculture-Rural Development, the new water treatment plant and storage tank will provide clean drinking water to Kasaan residents.

Funding for the project was provided by USDA-RD’s Rural Alaska Village Grant program.

According to the agency, Southeast Alaska is an area that has been identified for a USDA initiative. That includes forging new partnerships with rural communities to promote economic growth.
