$275,000 loan approved for Gayville wastewater project The state Board of Water and Natural Resources approved a $275,000 loan from the Clean Water State Revolving Fund to Gayville for improvements to the community's wastewater treatment system.
Gov. Mike Rounds recommended the funding, which was approved when the board met last Thursday and Friday.
"Treated water discharged from Gayville's existing wastewater lagoon has not consistently been in compliance with its discharge permit from DENR," said Rounds. "This loan will help Gayville make the improvements that are necessary to bring its wastewater treatment system back into compliance."
The project will include constructing a new three-cell wastewater treatment lagoon system, plugging an artesian well that is presently connected to the town's wastewater collection system, and making improvements to the city lift station.
The total estimated project cost is $463,000. The loan at 3.25 percent for 20 years and is in addition to a $100,000 Consolidated grant the board awarded in March.
The Clean Water State Revolving Fund program provides low interest loans for wastewater and storm water projects.
