GALVESTON, Texas -

The Federal Emergency Management Agency on Wednesday awarded more than $8 million to the state of Texas for improvements to a potable water pump in Galveston.

FEMA's Hazard Mitigation Grant Program will pay for 75 percent of the $10.8 million project.

The water pump station, located on 59th Street, will be demolished, replaced, elevated and hardened. The retrofit of the facility is designed to withstand a 500-year flood and extreme winds.
