EDA announces $1.6 million for Columbia sewer work
The Adair County Water District, now part of the Columbia/Adair County Utilities District will receive a $1.6 million grant from the Economic Development Administration (EDA),
The funds will allow for the construction of a sludge conditioning system at the wastewater treatment facility, construction of new lift stations and and water storage tanks, according to U.S. Commerce Secretary John Bryson for the Administration of President Barack Obama.
In subsequent announcement, U.S. Rep. Ed Whitfield (KY-01), praised the grant. "I applaud the Adair County Water District for being awarded this grant," Whitfield said. "This grant will create 20 jobs and potentially protect 1,500 jobs, while supporting the overall community in Adair County."
The grant comes in the wake of severe flooding in Adair County in May 2010.
