Millions earmarked for Valley Falls improvements

(KAIR)--The City of Valley Falls is on the list of nine Kansas infrastructure projects being funded through the U.S. Department of Agriculture.

A release from USDA Kansas State Director for Rural Development Christy Davis, the "$22.4 million investment will provide reliable high-speed internet access, clean water, and sanitary wastewater systems for rural communities."

The release outlines the projects, with Valley Falls the only one in the local area. According to the release, the City will receive a loan just short of $3 million-$2,925,000 to be exact-to help refurbish the wastewater collection system in the Jefferson County-based community. The project will include pipe repairs, pipe replacement, heavy pipe cleaning, and manhole repairs and replacement.

Announcement of the funding was made last week.
