Municipal Water System Improvements – Claremont NH

Description

Annual municipal reports for Claremont document extensive New Deal involvement in developing the city’s water supply and sewage systems. In 1935, this work included WPA aid in the construction of the local Rice Reservoir, and CCC construction of five “water holes” “in outlying sections as an added aid in combating fires on isolated farms.” In 1940, the PWA contributed to a municipal sewer project, and WPA labor was used to improve the hospital’s sewer lines. New Deal aid for sewer projects continued into 1941.
