Tuesday, 09 July 2013 06:37

The City of Gamaliel in Monroe County has received a $350,000 grant to upgrade the

city's wastewater infrastructure from the United States Department of Agriculture.

 

Rural Development funds will be used to rehabilitate the existing wastewater

treatment plant and collection system and install a UV system at the plant to reduce

operational costs.

 

The entire wastewater system is over 22 years old and experiencing numerous

operational failures, including raw sewage spills at pump stations according to

Rural Development Director Tom Fern.

 

The city has received several "Notices of Violations" statements from the Kentucky

Division of Water. The upgrades will provide a safe, dependable and sanitary means

of waste disposal for approximately 215 existing customers in rural Monroe County.

The total project cost is estimated to be $1,010,000.
