City will evaluate wastewater collection system improvements
JEFFERSON CITY, MO, JULY 27, 2022 – The Missouri Department of Natural Resources has awarded a $62,500 Clean Water Engineering Report Grant to the city of Hayti Heights to evaluate the city’s wastewater collection system. The grant offers funding to qualified communities to help cover engineering costs for evaluating water and wastewater system improvements.
The city will use the grant to identify wastewater system improvements needed to continue reliable service to the area and reduce stormwater infiltration into sewer collection pipes. The facility’s plan should be complete in December 2023.
“We believe very strongly in helping Missouri communities like Hayti Heights maintain their water treatment systems,” said Dru Buntin, director of the Department of Natural Resources. “One of the ways we do that is by offering financial assistance through programs like the Clean Water Engineering Report Grant.”
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.
