DES MOINES, IOWA (BNO NEWS) – Iowa Governor Culver on Wednesday announced $20 million in I-JOBS funds to enhance water infrastructure for three communities.
The city of Clinton will receive $2.5 million to construct a new wastewater treatment plant and pump station. The city of Sioux City will receive $8 million to construct a new line from a well field to the water plant, to construct a new collector well and to build a new water plant. The city of Davenport will receive $9.5 million for the West Side Diversion Tunnel to connect the Duck Creek sanitary sewers to the River Front interceptor.
The combined total cost of these projects is more than $151 million. The funds are from the Water Quality Financial Assistance Program, a part of the Culver/Judge I-JOBS initiative.
“These are exactly the type of projects that I-JOBS was designed to help construct,” said Governor Culver. “With these funds, we are helping these communities meet their immediate infrastructure needs, all while laying the groundwork for future economic growth. I am proud to partner with these three cities, as well as all I-JOBS recipients.”
Governor Culver will be in Clinton and Davenport on Thursday to talk about the impact of their new I-JOBS grants on their communities.
