Jamestown obtains a loan for a water distribution project
BISMARCK, ND (NDDEQ) – The North Dakota Department of Environmental Quality (NDDEQ) has provided loans for water supply and sanitary sewer projects to two communities through the Fund Programs renewables from the state in August.
Jamestown received a loan of $ 1,991,000 from the State Revolving Drinking Water Fund (DWSRF) to replace parts of the existing water distribution system. As a result, three blocks of pipes will be enlarged and ten blocks will be replaced with pipes of the same size. This project will ensure the safe transmission of water to residents.
Wahpeton received a state revolving fund for water sanitation of $ 1,964,000 and a DWSRF loan of $ 1,103,000 for the replacement of a water main, storm sewer and aging sanitary. This project will ensure the safe transmission of water, sanitary wastewater and stormwater to residents.
The United States Environmental Protection Agency provides part of the funding for SRF programs, which provides loans at below market interest rates to political subdivisions for the funding of projects authorized under the Clean Water Act and the Safe Drinking Water Act. SRF programs operate nationwide to provide funds to maintain and improve the infrastructure that protects our vital water resources.
Loans are granted to projects on the NDDEQ priority projects list based on the eligibility and repayment capacity of the projects.
