CANTON — The Canton Water District is applying for grants to extend its water main from the downtown to the new Town Office and fire station on Route 108, Superintendent Debi Hutchins told selectmen last week.

“We’re trying to get decent water to the fire station, but there is no financial obligation (on the town’s part) at this point,” Hutchins said.

Hutchins said the district is seeking grants to cover engineering work. She said there is an 8-inch diameter water main that goes as far as The Big Apple convenience store and gas station on Route 108. Because that pipe is made of asbestos, they want to remove it and install an 8-inch diameter pipe that doesn’t contain asbestos.

She asked selectmen for a letter of support to apply for Community Development Block Grant program and rural development grants.

The board approved the request.
