By Newsroom America Feeds at 11 Oct 2017

SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico – FEMA awarded the Puerto Rico Aqueduct and Sewer Authority (PRASA) $70 million for emergency work, bringing the total amount of assistance awarded to individuals and communities to $210 million.

PRASA is the primary water and sewer provider for the government of Puerto Rico. Since most of the island is still without power, generators at these facilities must be utilized around the clock in order to avoid a potential public health crisis.
