To Be Rebuilt at Jones Point Park

The American Water Charitable Foundation has provided a grant of $22,500 to support the Union Sportsmen’s Alliance’s 100th Work Boots on the Ground project at the Jones Point Park. The alliance will support the National Park Service by replacing a fishing pier at the park originally constructed in 1950 that is in need of repair. The grant helps cover expenses to rebuild the fishing pier. Virginia American Water provides drinking water service to the City of Alexandria, and the company’s Alexandria District employees will help rebuild the pier by supplying some of the skilled union workers to complete a portion of the project.
