CORPUS CHRISTI – The Corpus Christi Army Depot is transitioning from it's 1940s-era buildings to new "gold-standard" buildings in a multi-year build plan.
Seventy-six years after activation, Naval Air Station Corpus Christi will install a new water pipeline for the more than 500 facilities on base.
The city received two grants from the Texas Military Preparedness Commission to benefit NAS Corpus Christi and the Corpus Christi Army Depot.
The city's application was chosen by the Defense Economic Adjustment Assistance Grant program.
The local grants total $6 million and will go toward a new water supply line for the station and perimeter fencing and access control gates for helicopter repair facilities.
The current water pipeline has not been replaced since NAS Corpus Christi was commissioned in 1941.
Before construction can begin, the Navy has to agree to accept the city's projects because each would be on military-owned land.
