City of Warrenton to improve sewer system with $750,000 grant from state government
By Caitlin Boland

The City of Warrenton received a $750,000 grant from the Georgia Department of Community Affairs (DCA) for sewer improvements in the city.
The Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) will cover the majority of an approximately $830,000 project, replacing old clay pipes in the target areas. These areas include Bond, Cedar, Hall, Hudson, Maywood, Davis, Hill, N. Whitehead, Oak and Short streets. The project will rehabilitate approximately 5,264 linear feet of clay sewer lines through pipe bursting, installing approximately 400 linear feet of new 8-inch sewer lines and rehabilitating 25 manholes, according to the DCA.
City Administrator Mary Ann Moseley said the difference in cost will be paid by the city in cash and in-kind services.
According to Moseley, there are 71 houses in the target areas, 62 of which are occupied. One hundred and twenty-three people will benefit from the project, approximately 80 percent of whom are considered low to moderate income by the DCA.
