The Lac du Flambeau Chippewa band plans a major overhaul of its water system with the help of $1.2 million in grants from the federal government.

About $1 million of the money will go for the water project, including an expansion of the system and five new wells to be constructed this summer. The rural development funds come from the U.S. Department of Agriculture.
