Will install 11,245 linear feet of sewer force main
FRANKFORT, Ky. (Aug. 8, 2016) — The Appalachian Regional Commission (ARC) approved funding for a $500,000 grant for the Perry County Sanitation District No. 1. Funds will be used to expand and upgrade the area’s existing wastewater collection system to provide sewer service for 30 households and the Chavies Elementary School.
“Providing better infrastructure in Kentucky’s Appalachian-region communities is one of our administration’s highest priorities,” said Gov. Matt Bevin. “Through this expansion and upgrade, we are making sure the elementary school students, as well as every other citizen of communities like Chavies, have proper access to these critical services.”
The proposed project is Phase I of four planned phases to add customers until the entire community of Chavies is provided wastewater service. The project will install 11,245 linear feet of sewer force main, 30 grinder pumps and one lift station to serve Kentucky Highway 28 area from Combs Branch Road to the Chavies Elementary School, including the Noodle Creek Area.
Applications for ARC funds, available to Kentucky’s 54 most eastern and south-central counties, are submitted to DLG.
