In October, U.S. Sen. Jeanne Shaheen, D-N.H., wrote to EPA Administrator Lisa Jackson, seeking funding for the project.

“Making sure that citizens throughout New Hampshire have access to clean, reliable drinking water is critical to protecting the public health of Granite State citizens and families,” Shaheen said. “The announcement of funding for the water line extension is welcome news for the town of Atkinson, and I look forward to continuing to work with the EPA and town officials in our efforts to protect residents’ safety.”

Barbera said he hopes the news means residents can return to normal.

“People have been trying to sell their houses and haven’t been able to,” he said. “They have had their lives disrupted.”
