Town receives water conservation grant

The town has received a $74,000 state grant designed to help conserve water, manage demand during peak periods, and lessen the environmental impact of large water withdrawals. Kingston officials said the funds will be used to develop a supply management system that will meet the town’s water demands while minimizing the impact on the flow of the Jones River. Low water flow during periods of high water use (generally the summer) diminishes the river’s fish populations and harms other aquatic life. “Communities need to balance the need for drinking water with the ecological health of the water body from which they draw their water,” state Energy and Environmental Affairs Secretary Rick Sullivan said in a press release.
