WOODBINE, Ga. – The water in Camden County will be improving in the near future. Over $204,000 was awarded to Camden County to help better water quality on Nov. 22. 

The US Environmental Protection Agency gave Camden County $204,375 to pay for improvements to the Horsepen Creek. The money will help to reduce pollution in the St. Marys River and will be administered by the Georgia Department of Natural Resources–Environmental Protection Division (EPD).

County Administrator Steve Howard expressed his enthusiasm for the grant. 

“We are excited for the opportunity to work with the Georgia EPD on this project,” Howard said. “We value working with our partners, both locally and in the State of Georgia, to make a positive difference for Camden County.”
