Eagle Bend receives funds to improve wastewater and drinking water systems
The Minnesota Public Facilities Authority (PFA) announced $124 million in loans and grants in the first half of 2021 for water and infrastructure projects in 24 communities throughout Minnesota.
“Responsible management of our public waterways is a basic expectation of government,” said PFA Chair and Commissioner of the Department of Employment and Economic Development (DEED) Steve Grove. “These projects will ensure our citizens have clean drinking water for years to come.”
Most of the funding came directly from the PFA’s Clean Water and Drinking Water revolving loan funds and grants from the Water Infrastructure Fund (WIF) and Point Source Implementation Grants grants programs. An additional $150 million came from other state funding, the U.S. Department of Agriculture and local sources.
Eagle Bend is one of the 24 communities to receive funds for a water infrastructure project in the amount of $439,623.
The project consists of Phase 4 sanitary sewer rehabilitation along 3rd Avenue SW and South Street. PFA funding comes from a loan of $87,925 and a WIF grant of $351,698. The total project cost is $439,623.
