JEFFERSON CITY, MO, AUG. 11, 2009 -- Gov. Jay Nixon announced the Missouri Department of Natural Resources has awarded the city of St. Martins in Cole County with a $200,000 low interest loan and a $30,800 rural sewer grant. During tough economic times, this infusion of loan and grant funding will help St. Martins protect its citizens and the environment by making necessary wastewater improvements.
The city will use the funds to construct a wastewater collection system to serve an unsewered area of the city. The project is estimated to cost $275,200 and is expected to be completed in January 2010. The city will use the grant and loan in conjunction with city funds to pay for the project.
The Department of Natural Resources' Water Protection Program will administer the grant funds. The Department is committed to working closely with communities to assist with funding efforts that support water and wastewater infrastructure improvement projects as well as provide a financial savings.
