The Kentucky Infrastructure Authority (KIA) approved the City of Liberty, KY, request for an increase in a previous loan adding $504,000 to the originally approved loan of $4,156,000. The KIA approved the request for additional funding at its Thursday, December 1, 2016 meeting in Frankfort, KY. The loan is for upgrades and improvements to the City of Liberty wastewater plant. The loan is repayable over 30 years at a .75% interest rates. The increase was allowed after 16 bids for the project exceed original estimates.
According to the KIA, the upgrades and improvements to the wastewater treatment focus on addressing wet weather flows with the addition of a 1.5 million gallon flow equalization basin and a duplex submersible pump station for wet weather conditions. The project will also upgrade or replace plant components that have outlived their intended usage including the raw sewage flow meter and the grit removal equipment. A static screen, sludge treatment equipment and a blower will be added in addition to laboratory and office facilities with modern instrumentation and controls.
The project is designed to address issues listed in an agreed order reached in August 2014 with the Division of Enforcement in the Kentucky Energy and Environment Cabinet Department for Environmental Protection that included a $3,000 fine to be paid by the city.
Construction is scheduled to begin in February 2017. It is anticipated to take a year to complete.
The utility serves 875 residential and commercial customers.
