The City of Campbellsville will receive a $364,000 grant through a U.S. Department of Agriculture Rural Development program, U.S. Representative Ron Lewis announced last week. The grant, combined with a $582,000 pre-approved loan, will be used to replace about 10 miles of water lines, install new flush hydrants and meter reconnects and make improvements to the water treatment plant.
"Many rural communities are facing an increasing demand for safe drinking water, adequate water treatment, and improved infrastructure for fire and emergency services," Lewis stated in a press release. "Federal grant programs are important resources for communities struggling to acquire sufficient funding for these essential projects."
The Water and Waste Disposal Loan and Grant Assistance Program provides grants to assist in the development of essential community facilities in rural areas and towns of up to 20,000 in population. Grant funds can be used to construct, enlarge, or improve community facilities for health care, public safety and community and public services.
