CAPE MAY — The city was awarded a $400,000 Small Cities Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) through the New Jersey Department of Community Affairs. This award will provide funds to install a dedicated 12-inch raw water main from Well No. 8 to the desalination facility. This dedicated 12-inch raw water main will provide greater operational flexibility and improve resiliency on the raw water supply system resulting in city-wide water service benefits.
“This grant is a wonderful thing for Cape May. The City is pleased to receive these funds and would like to make progress on this project as quickly as possible,” stated Mayor Zachary Mullock.
