USDA announces funding for water district in Kendall
KENDALL – The U.S. Department of Agriculture has awarded $672,000 in funding for a water project in the Town of Kendall.
The USDA will provide a $384,000 grant and a $288,000 loan to create the West Kendall Road Water District #10.
This project will be located along Roosevelt Highway (Route 18) in an east-west direction and northerly along West Kendall Road. This will include replacing 6,500 linear feet of water main. This project will extend public water service to 19 residential users that currently do not have safe potable water, the USDA said.
Water-quality testing indicates a significant portion of the residents’ individual wells have coliform bacteria, which the Health Department indicates does not meet standards and are a threat to the health of residents, according to the USDA.
The USDA also approved more than $4 million for a water project in the Town of Sweden in Brockport. The town will construct a waterline on Lake Road and Redman Road. The project will extend an existing public water system to residents that currently have poor quality and quantity of water. The USDA is providing a $2,000,000 loan and $2,327,000 grant for the project.
