Alexander secures $500,000 for Sparta
“Since I was elected to Congress, I’ve worked to secure funding for this imperative project. This funding will be used to find ways to save our drinking water supply for future generations.”
Ruston Mayor Dan Hollingsworth said the money would go a long way toward completing a study on the viability of using Lake D’Arbonne as an alternative water source to the Sparta Aquifer.
“I think it’s great,” Hollingsworth said. “It’s taken a lot of effort on the part of Congressman Alexander’s office and our delegation to make this happen. We really appreciate their efforts.”
