Flemington, Camden County and Saline County will evaluate drinking water system improvements

JEFFERSON CITY, MO, AUG. 25, 2022 – The Missouri Department of Natural Resources has awarded Drinking Water Engineering Report grants in the amounts of $30,000 to the Village of Flemington, $24,000 to Camden County Public Water Supply District No. 5 and $24,800 to Saline County Public Water Supply District No. 3 to evaluate their drinking water systems. 

The grant offers funding to qualified communities to help cover engineering costs for evaluating water system improvements. The three grantees will use the funding to identify system improvements needed to continue providing reliable service to their customers and meet drinking water quality standards.

“This grant allows Missouri communities to assess their drinking water systems and identify improvements that will keep them operating effectively,” said Dru Buntin, director of the Missouri Department of Natural Resources. “This not only helps communities maintain and improve key infrastructure, it provides important economic benefits as well.”

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.
