Revolving Fund loans awarded for area projects

BISMARCK – The State Revolving Fund (SRF) programs, jointly administered by the North Dakota Department of Environmental Quality and the North Dakota Public Finance Authority, awarded six loans for water and sanitary sewer projects in the last two months.

Sawyer received a $480,000 Clean Water SRF loan toward repairing its sanitary sewer collection system to improve the reliability of the system.

Central Plains Water Resource District received a $9.7 million Drinking Water SRF loan to enhance the Maddock water treatment plant, including adding a new transmission line to the reservoir. The project will address supply issues with current customers and allow for the addition of new customers currently using private wells.

Other loans went to Aneta, $930,000 and $1.57 million to fix or replace water and sanitary sewer mains; Buffalo, $1.3 million to replace and upsize the sanitary force main; and South Central Regional Water District, $2.5 million to connect Ashley to the water district.

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency provides part of the SRF programs’ funding, which offers below-market interest rate loans to political subdivisions for financing projects authorized under the Clean Water Act and Safe Drinking Water Act.
