(MARCH 2, 2011) USDA RURAL DEVELOPMENT PROVIDES LOAN AND GRANT FUNDS TO PUBLIC WATER SUPPLY DISTRICT #3 OF JOHNSON COUNTY

Johnson County, MO, Mar 02, 2011 -- During a ceremony at the water district office on March 2, 2011, Janie Dunning, USDA Rural Development Missouri State Director presented a Certificate of Appreciation to the Public Water Supply District #3 of Johnson County. The district has received funds consisting of a loan for $1,123,000 and grant for $855,000 from USDA Rural Development’s Water and Wastewater Program. The funds will be used to provide improvements to the Hickory Hills sewer collection and treatment system. The system serves 170 residences. Specific improvements include removal of sludge from and closure of the existing lagoon and construction of a new lagoon with ‘no discharge’ land application system. Wastewater will be used as agricultural irrigation.

“Access to an environmentally safe and reliable sewage collection and treatment system is a fundamental necessity to each of us,” said Dunning. “This project mirrors USDA Rural Development’s mission and President Obama’s initiative of being committed to the future of rural communities. I want to personally thank everyone that has worked together to make this project a reality. I am pleased that so many rural households will benefit from having an adequate and dependable sewer treatment system. Special thanks are extended to our federal elected officials for making available the federal funds for funding this kind of project providing essential services to the residents of the PWSD #3 of Johnson County.”
