COLEBROOK, N.H. — The New Hampshire Executive Council has voted to send nearly $1.2 million in funding to the town of Colebrook for water and sewer improvements.

The money comes from the state Drinking Water and Groundwater Trust Fund.

Senate President Chuck Morse said the community is in critical need, with aging service lines and connections with a water loss rate of more than 70 percent. The Republican senator is chairman of the Drinking Water and Groundwater Commission.
