Glasglow, Halfway and Deer Run Reorganized Common Sewer District will evaluate drinking water system improvements
JEFFERSON CITY, MO, JULY 18, 2022 – The Missouri Department of Natural Resources has awarded a total of $79,600 in Drinking Water Engineering Report Grants to three communities to evaluate their drinking water systems. Grant recipients include the city of Glasgow, $24,000; the Village of Halfway, $25,600; and the Deer Run Reorganized Common Sewer District, $30,000.
The grant offers funding to qualified communities to help cover engineering costs for evaluating water system improvements. The grant recipients will use the funding to identify system improvements needed to continue providing reliable service to their customers and meet permit requirements.
“One of our priorities is helping Missouri communities of all sizes maintain and improve their water and wastewater treatment systems,” said Dru Buntin, director of the Department of Natural Resources. “One way we do that is by offering a variety of financial assistance programs through which communities can improve key infrastructure and experience real economic benefits.”
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.
