Ryan Announces Sewer, Water and Watershed Project Funding

SPRINGFIELD -- Governor George H. Ryan today announced that funding has been approved to provide a sewage treatment plant and sewer system for a currently unsewered village, refurbish two public drinking water systems, and support the control of pollution in the East Branch of the DuPage River watershed.

Funding comes through federal money, under the Clean Water Act and the Safe Drinking Water Act, channeled though the Illinois Environmental Protection Agency and bolstered by state matching funds.

The village of Broughton, which currently has no municipal waste treatment system, will receive both a hardship grant of $799,839 and loan assistance from the Illinois Environmental Protection Agency. In addition, Broughton will receive funds from the Illinois Department of Commerce and Community Affairs. The IEPA is providing a $185,856 loan under the revolving loan fund, while DCCA will grant $150,150. The entire project will cost $1,135,845.

The city of Jacksonville, in Morgan County, will receive a $351,821 construction loan toward replacement of equipment for high speed pumping at the city's water treatment plant. The total project is expected to cost $359,143.

An amendment to a previously approved $527,306 project for the Liberty-Ledford Public Water District, will provide $10,520 to add 3,700 feet of four inch water main on Feazel Road.

Funding of a U.S. EPA section 319 financial assistance grant has been approved for a variety of best management practices to control nonpoint source pollution in the watershed of the East Branch of the DuPage River. In Illinois, the 319 programs are administered through the Illinois EPA. The DuPage River project has a total cost of $1,779,467, and will receive $711,787 in federal funding.
