Trump administration invests over $2.6M in water system improvements
By Greg Thomas
The United States Department of Agriculture Rural Development Kentucky State Director Hilda Legg announced today the Trump administration is investing over $2.6 million in water system improvement and public safety projects in Adair County.
"These projects are great examples of how Rural Development works with communities to make rural Kentucky a better place to live," said Legg. "Thanks to the leadership of President Trump and Agriculture Secretary Perdue, USDA Rural Development continues to be a valuable partner in helping rural businesses and communities across the commonwealth."
The Adair County Water District will use a $647,930 grant and a $1,945,000 loan to construct approximately four miles of new waterline, replace approximately 2,800 lateral feet of substandard waterline, install telemetry at 19 sites, and replace three intake pumps at the wastewater treatment plant in order to improve and extend water service and improve wastewater treatment plant processes.
The Adair County Fiscal Court will use a $26,000 grant to purchase and equip two new vehicles for the Adair County Sheriff's Department.
The city of Columbia will use a $30,600 grant to purchase a truck and trailer equipped with drug education paraphernalia to travel to schools and community events, demonstrating the dangers of opioid addiction and distributing informational literature.
USDA Rural Development provides loans and grants to help expand economic opportunities and create jobs in rural areas. This assistance supports infrastructure improvements; business development; housing, community facilities such as schools, public safety and health care; and high-speed internet access in rural areas.
