City will evaluate wastewater system improvements

JEFFERSON CITY, MO, APRIL 2, 2024 – The Missouri Department of Natural Resources has awarded a $50,000 Clean Water Engineering Report Grant to the city of New Haven to evaluate the city’s wastewater system.

The grant offers funding to qualified communities to help cover engineering costs of evaluating water and wastewater system improvements. New Haven will use the grant to identify wastewater system improvements needed to continue reliable service to the area, meet permit requirements and reduce stormwater infiltration into sewer collection pipes. The facility plan should be complete in September 2025.

“The Clean Water State Revolving Fund helps qualified communities of all sizes pay for wastewater treatment system improvements that they might not have been able to undertake otherwise,” said Dru Buntin, director of the Missouri Department of Natural Resources. “We help Missouri communities plan and fund infrastructure upgrades that help protect and improve the quality of life for Missourians.”

The department is committed to assisting Missouri communities with water and wastewater infrastructure improvement projects. Through its Financial Assistance Center, the department provides funding opportunities for qualified communities with water quality, wastewater and drinking water infrastructure needs. This project will be funded wholly or in part with monies received from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.
