CHARLESTOWN — Charlestown was awarded nearly $4.3 million this week in federal funds to aid the town’s long-sought drinking water project to improve water quality in North Charlestown.

Town officials were notified this week of $4,289,000 in total federal funds being awarded to Charlestown by the New Hampshire Department of Environmental Services (NHDES) to fund the municipality’s interconnect project, which will connect Charlestown’s primary well to 134 public water users in North Charlestown whose well water has arsenic levels that exceed state regulations.
