JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. — The city of Gallatin has received a $40,000 grant for wastewater collection improvements.

The money is from the Clean Water Engineering Report Grant that addresses inflow and infiltration of stormwater into city collection systems.

The city will use the grant to identify wastewater system improvements needed to continue reliable service to the area and reduce inflow and infiltration of stormwater into the sewer system.

“Water and wastewater treatment systems are key elements of a community’s infrastructure,” said Carol Comer, director of the Missouri Department of Natural Resources. “We are committed to helping Missouri communities find funding for infrastructure improvement projects, which in turn helps protect public and environmental health and supports the local economy.”

The facility plan should be complete in January 2021.
