Delgado Makes a Splash with Water Grant


By Ashley Larsen

Delgado Community College received a 1.5 million dollar grant from GE to aid its efforts to train certified water infrastructure personnel for the Sewerage and Water Board of New Orleans. The announcement was made today during the Water Environment Federation's Annual Technical Exhibition (WEFTEC) held in New Orleans this week. The dough is part of a partnership between GE Foundation, Delgado and the city of New Orleans to create jobs in advanced manufacturing over the course of the next three years.
