(SEPTEMBER 20, 2011) RURAL DEVELOPMENT AWARDS $908,000 TO VILLAGE OF WALTHILL

Walthill, Nebraska, Sep 20, 2011 -- USDA Rural Development has awarded a $908,000 loan to the Village of Walthill to assist with the Village sewer project. Leveraged funds of $900,000 from Indian Health Services and $350,000 from a Community Development Block Grant will be utilized.

“We are very pleased to assist with Walthill’s sewer project. Keeping the environment clean and healthy protects the rural residents and the natural resources,” said Nebraska State Director Maxine Moul, USDA Rural Development.

“We are very appreciative of the funds that will help with our sewer needs. The news of the funding came at a much needed time,” said Clerk/Treasurer Lisa Beaudette, Village of Walthill.

The funds will be used to replace the Village’s sewer treatment plant. The project consists of constructing a new lift station, force main, 18 acres of wastewater treatment lagoons and an outfall line.

Funding was provided through the USDA Rural Development Water and Waste Disposal Loan program. The loan is for 40 years at 2.5 percent rate of interest. For more information contact Jolene Kasper at (402) 371-5350 Ext. 1003; or jolene.kasper@ne.usda.gov.
