Plant is 30 years old
FRANKFORT, Ky. (Nov. 4, 2016) — The Department for Local Government (DLG) approved funding for a $1 million Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) for the City of Fleming-Neon to design, construct and upgrade the existing water treatment plant at McRoberts.
Funds will be used to replace water process equipment, pumps, electrical supply system, back-up generators and provide a lab and safety equipment.
The current water treatment plant was built more than 30 years ago. The mechanical components are reaching the end of their service life and showing signs of corrosion. This upgrade will allow for the continued provision of safe and clean water.
CDBG provides assistance to communities for use in revitalizing neighborhoods, expanding affordable housing and economic opportunities, providing infrastructure and/or improving community facilities and services.
