ANCHORAGE (AP) -- The Federal Emergency Management Agency will pay $1.4 million to repair the Lime Village washeteria.
The washeteria was heavily damaged by spring flooding last year. River ice pushed the structure off its foundation.
In announcing the funding, the agency said the washeteria is a key source of clean water for the village's 41 residents.
The agency's $1.4 million will cover most of the cost of repairs. An additional $400,000 will come from the state of Alaska and local resources.
Lime Village, with approximately 41 residents, is located about 185 miles west of Anchorage on the Stony River.
