BRUNSWICK, Maine (AP) — The U.S. Department of Commerce is awarding $615,000 to the agency that’s redeveloping the former Brunswick Naval Air Station in Maine.

The department’s Economic Development Administration announced Tuesday that the money will be used by the Midcoast Regional Redevelopment Authority to repair and upgrade sewer pumps needed to support its efforts in Brunswick.
