Letcher wastewater project to receive $775,000 loan

PIERRE – Gov. Dennis Daugaard announced recently that the state Board of Water and Natural Resources has approved a $775,000 low-interest loan from the Clean Water State Revolving Fund to Letcher for wastewater system improvements.
The loan includes $275,000 in principal forgiveness, which leaves a $500,000 loan repayment. Loan terms are 3.25 percent for 30 years.
“I am pleased to announce that Letcher will receive this assistance,” said Gov. Daugaard. “This money will help Letcher make necessary improvements to its wastewater collection and treatment systems so they are more reliable and efficient.”
The project involves replacing the town’s existing lift station, inspecting all of the sanitary sewer lines, and installing riprap along the dikes of the wastewater treatment ponds.
The funding package will cover the estimated cost of the project.
The Clean Water State Revolving Fund Program provides low-interest loans for wastewater and storm water projects. Principal forgiveness is a subsidy option that results in a reduced loan repayment amount for the borrower.
The board met Thursday and Friday in Pierre.
