A Perry County town will receive federal funds to make improvements to its water system.  

The grant for New Straitsville is for $500,000.

The Ohio Department of Development says the village is going to replace nearly 17,000 feet of waterlines and nearly 7,000 feet of service lines.

The estimated project cost is $1.1 million and it will benefit about 300 households.
