The city of Alexandria is receiving $1 million in federal disaster recovery grants for water infrastructure projects.  The money will be used to correct problems that came to light during flooding in 2008.  Indiana Lieutenant Governor Becky Skillman announced the recipients of the grant money today.  Skillman says the money will help Hoosier cities provide adequate water and wastewater treatment for residents… and to help communities grow economically, as well.   In total, Indiana cities and towns received more than $34 million for water infrastructure projects.  No city received more than $1 million.
