Dadeville, MO, Apr 23, 2012 --

@@USDA, Rural Development recognized the Village of Dadeville for completion of improvements to the water system with loan funds made available by the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009. The village received a $390,000 low-interest loan to construct a new standpipe, new pump controller, and a permanent liquid chlorinator. The new water storage and equipment will alleviate health and sanitary standards caused by insufficient water storage. The village can now continue providing safe, reliable drinking water serving 100 customers in the local community.

“There are no more important ingredients to a healthy community than safe, reliable water,” said U.S. Senator Claire McCaskill. “I’m thrilled the Village of Dadeville will be able to use these resources, and I’ll continue working to equip our rural areas with the tools necessary to improve the health and well-being of the community.”

“This effort to improve the drinking water for Dadeville is the result of great partnerships with everyone working together to meet the needs for an environmentally safe water distribution system, stated Anita “Janie” Dunning, Missouri State Director for USDA Rural Development. “I commend all the partners for their hard work in making this project a reality. Special thanks are extended to our federal elected officials including U.S. Senators Claire McCaskill and Roy Blunt, and U.S. Representative Vicky Hartzler for being strong supporters of funding for essential services for rural Missourians.”
