WOODBINE — The borough will receive more than $4 million in federal grants and loans to start the first phase of building a new sanitary sewer collection system.

The grants and loans were secured by U.S. Rep. Frank LoBiondo, R-2nd, from the U.S. Department of Agriculture. The sewer collection system will serve the downtown area and ultimately connect the borough to the Cape May County Municipal Utilities Authority’s system, Mayor William Pikolycky said.

Pikolycky said he believes the funding is the largest individual grant the USDA has awarded for an initial phase of a major project.

“USDA has been a great partner with many communities in South Jersey throughout the years to upgrade public infrastructure and services,” LoBiondo said in a statement. “This federal funding will greatly help to fund a vital public health project to benefit Woodbine and its residents.”
