Sewer rehabilitation project in Iola, KS, gets grant

Sponsored by

KANSAS CITY, KS, Aug. 2, 2010 -- EPA has awarded $768,000 to Iola, Kan., for improvements to the sewer system.

EPA Region 7 Administrator Karl Brooks said, "It's always a pleasure to help Kansas communities better protect their water resources. These water infrastructure funds will partially fund the construction project which is estimated to cost $2.6 million."

The purpose of the project is to repair and replace approximately 40,000 feet of existing sewer which is deteriorating due to age. This will reduce sewage overflows to local streams, blockages that can cause sewage backups into buildings, and pavement failures above collapsing pipes.

EPA oversees the protection of water quality and public health. The Agency is working with community leaders and the public to meet the growing needs and demands of our limited water resources. EPA remains committed to developing innovative and sustainable solutions for managing and financing infrastructure with public and private partners.
