The Missouri Department of Natural Resources recently announced they are awarding over 6 million dollars in financial assistance for the city of Springfield to upgrade its wastewater collection system.
The project is estimated to cost $6.4 million dollars. Project funding consists of a $4.87 million loan and a $1.5 million grant through the Clean Water State Revolving Fund.
The Clean Water State Revolving Fund finances improvements to wastewater treatment facilities, sewer collection systems rehabilitation and extensions, combined sewer overflow corrections, and security, efficiency, and conservation measures.
According to a news release from the Missouri Department of Natural Resources, “The improvement project will feature a major rehabilitation of the public sewer system using cured in-place pipe lining to reduce unwanted inflow and infiltration of groundwater and stormwater. The project is expected to significantly reduce sewer overflows by increasing the system’s capacity to handle peak flow events.”
The project is expected to be completed by March of 2025.
