Water Treatment Funding in Kentucky
A water treatment enhancement partnership between the Division of Water in Kentucky and the Community Action of Kentucky will award economic assistance to advance water treatment systems in seven Kentucky small communities who serve less than 10,000 customers.
The Capacity Development Assistance Program for Small Water Treatment Systems will prove to be more cost-effective through technical, managerial and financial improvements.
Small Water Treatment – Big Headache
Smaller facilities face the same challenges as larger water treatment plants, but with less money and staff.
The goal of the Capacity Development Assistance Program for Small Water Systems is to allow smaller water treatment plants to complete vital, non-regulatory tasks that would be difficult to pursue otherwise.
Seven Small Water Treatment Facilities
The seven communities chosen to get water treatment funding are the Calhoun Water Works, the Horse Cave Water Company, Bronston Water Association, Monroe County Water District, Wallins Water System, Morgan County Water District, and the Williamsburg Water Department.
Criteria for selection included factors such as equipment, continuing education needs and organizational management.
Grant funding, provided by the (DWSRF) Drinking Water State Revolving Fund through the Commonwealth of Kentucky will allow for important repairs to water plant infrastructures as well as ongoing, preventive maintenance necessary to prevent contamination to drinking water.
The purpose of the program is to produce safe drinking water for all communities in Kentucky.
