CLINTON, Ind. (WTHI) - People in Clinton, Indiana could see fewer water main breaks and subsequent boil orders thanks to a $600,000.

The city was awarded the federal money through the Small Cities and Towns Community Development Block Grant program. The money will be used to repair, replace or install water mains, pipes and hydrants across the city.

Shut-off valves will be installed across the city so if there is an issue service will not be shut-off to the entire city.

Mayor Jack Gilfoy says the city will match the grant.

Work for this project should begin this Fall.
